Union Co., transportation officials look for fixes to sharp curves on highway

Local News

UNION COUNTY, Ky. (WEHT) A stretch of a Union County highway has some county leaders concerned about the safety of people driving through their area.

Curves on the Royster’s curve section of Highway 60 near the Union County-Henderson County line has led to some drivers complaining about it being too sharp for them.

Recently, Royster’s Curve was a part of Highway 60 in Union County that was elevated to help out with flooding problems in this area. Now Judge Executive Adam O’Nan wants something done to help out with the curve’s sharpness.

Judge O’Nan says 45 MPH curve signs will be up in the near future. He says residents have complained about the sharpness after that stretch of 60 was rebuilt.

“The radius of the curve has been changed just a bit and it has caused concern for some residents and it’s caused concerns for me,” he said.

O’Nan says they’re working with Kentucky Transportation officials on a more permanent fix to widen the curve, but they’re still determining what the fix will be. The signs could go up as soon as next week. O’Nan also says that a more permanent fix will have to wait until the weather gets warmer.
