The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) said crews will take advantage of Tuesday's warmer temperatures and dry conditions as they re-stripe a section on Dixie Highway.

A northbound lane of Dixie Highway between Upper Hunters Trace and Heaton Road will be closed starting at 9 a.m. Tuesday.

KYTC said the re-striping is to accommodate lane shifts when construction begins on Dixie Highway's southbound lanes in this area.
