Russell County Sheriff Clete McAninch

A one vehicle wreck early Wednesday injured a Springfield
man.

Deputy Dustin Bunch’s investigation determined James Wheatley,
20, fell asleep at the wheel of his southbound 1998 GMC pickup
near the Russell-Adair county line on KY 55, resulting in the truck
leaving the roadway, striking a culvert and embankment, then
flipping end-over-end before finally coming to rest on its top.

Wheatley was transported by Russell County EMS to the Russell
County Hospital for treatment of minor neck and other injuries.

Although the vehicle was severely damaged, Deputy Bunch
attributes the fact that Wheatley’s injuries are non-life threatening
to proper use of his seat-belt.

That accident occurred at 5:47 a.m.

Paving to begin next week on KY 80 in Russell County
One-Lane work zone
 
SOMERSET, Ky. (June 12, 2017) – The Kentucky Transportation
Cabinet (KYTC) District 8 Office advises motorists that beginning
Monday, June 19, crews will begin performing paving operations
on KY 80 in Russell County.
Work will be performed starting at the Adair/Russell County line
(mile point 0) and end at the intersection of U.S. 127 in Russell
Springs (mile point 3.9). During these operations the roadway
will be reduced to one lane with traffic controlled by flaggers.
The pavement operations will consist of a process known as
cape-sealing. Cape-sealing is a preventive maintenance process
aimed at extending the life of aging pavement. Cape-sealing is a
three-step process. It includes a layer of chip and seal, followed by
sweeping to remove excess gravel, then a coating of asphalt slurry
is applied to smooth and seal the driving surface. Motorists are
advised that during the process drivers will encounter a chip and
seal surface for a short period of time. Once the final stages of
the application are applied drivers can expect a smooth driving
surface.   
Work is expected to be completed in approximately five weeks.
The starting date and duration of work may be adjusted for
inclement weather or other unforeseeable delays. Drivers should
expect delays and are encouraged to allow extra time in reaching
their destination.
