4/26/2021: Drivers who use KY 77 in the Red River Gorge in Powell County will need to find another route on Wednesday, April 28. The road will be closed between milepoints 1.5 and 3.7 for replacement of a drainage pipe. This location is in the Red River Gorge between Branham Cemetery Road and the Martins Fork trailhead parking area, and includes the Nada Tunnel. 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. 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.
