Turfway Road To Close For One Month

Posted On June 18, 2012

(Florence, Ky.) – Part of Turfway Road in Florence will be closed as part of a project to open a new road.


The $19 million South Airfield Road project will eventually stetch 2.5 miles to connect Kentucky 18 and Turfway Road when it opens later this year.


Turfway Road will be closed between O’Hara Lane and Thoroughbred Boulevard next Monday, June 25 through July 24 as crews work to connect the new road, the Kentucky Enquirer reports.


South Airfield Road is expected to handle 49,000 vehicles a day for 2030, taking some traffic off of Kentucky 18. It will open hundreds of acres of property for new economic development.
