Ky 77 closed for pipe replacement in Powell County next month By Leah Caudill March 29, 2021
POWELL COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ) – Drivers who use KY 77 in the Red River Gorge in Powell County will need to find another route on Wednesday, April 14.
The road will be closed between milepoints 1.5 and 3.7 for replacement of two drainage pipes. This location is between Branham Cemetery Road and the Martins Fork trailhead parking area, and includes the Nada Tunnel. - Advertisement -
Work will begin around 8 a.m., and should be completed by 3 p.m. During this time, the road will be closed to all through traffic.
No marked detour will be posted, but drivers can use KY 11/KY 15, KY 613, and Forest Service Road 23 through Menifee County as an alternate route. Motorists should plan their trips accordingly.
At this time, KY 715 in Wolfe County is still closed between Sky Bridge and the Menifee County line, so that route is not available for use as a detour.
Between 550 and 600 vehicles use this portion of KY 77 each day.
In case of inclement weather, the closure will be postponed until another suitable date.

jamiekaj: I'm new to climbing (been in the gym for about a month now) and am looking for partners to get me to the gorge and back (from Lexington) / teach me a few things. I have gear (minus a rope) and could provide pizza, gas, and beer.
