Road Work May Start Monday

You could see work starting today to repair and stabilize a portion of Route 18 (Carpenter Drive) in the Midland Heights/Cedar Hill area. Currently, normal access to South Covington is restricted to this road because access from the Jackson Street side into South Covington is closed due the “bluff project” and complete road closure there, thus resulting in increased, heavy traffic volumes on Carpenter Drive. Route 18, Carpenter Drive currently serves the Jackson Street, Edgemont, Parrish Court and Idewilde areas in the city, as well as Mallow (city/county), and the Potts Creek area of Alleghany County. Access to these areas could take place with a detour thru the Mallow area of the county if necessary.
