Daniels Lane Traffic Light Repair Notice

A traffic light at the intersection of Daniels Lane and U.S. 60 will be disabled for repair and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is encouraging drivers to detour around the area using Pleasant Valley Road or Ky. 603 starting Tuesday, Dec. 3. A crew will also be on the site starting Monday, Dec. 2, to begin preliminary work on the project. Joe Taylor, executive director of facilities at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital, said backups are expected, especially around shift changes, so employees are encouraged to use the detours on Tuesday.

Keith Todd, a spokesman for the KYTC, said a traffic light controller at the intersection was badly damaged by a car wreck earlier in November, necessitating the light’s shutdown for the repair.

A stop sign will be placed on Daniels Lane for traffic turning onto U.S. 60, but U.S. 60 traffic will not be stopped by signs or any other signals. Todd said the light at the intersection would likely be disabled for several hours on Tuesday to allow for the traffic light control cabinet to be replaced. The repair work is weather-dependent and will be rescheduled if it rains.
