603 KAR 5:080. Truck detours.


      RELATES TO: KRS 189.222(4)

      STATUTORY AUTHORITY: KRS 174.080, 189.222

      NECESSITY, FUNCTION, AND CONFORMITY: KRS 189.222 authorizes the Secretary of the Transportation Cabinet to designate truck size permits on all roads that are a part of the State Primary Road System. This administrative regulation is adopted to designate the limitations applicable on those roads used in detours from the State Primary Road System.


      Section 1. From time to time it becomes necessary to close a section of designated highway because of new construction. When this is done, the Transportation Cabinet will provide, if possible, marked detours which will carry the same truck weight as the road from which the traffic is being detoured. If it is not possible to provide a detour to carry this weight, the detour will be marked and limited as to weight. A marked detour for a designated highway which is marked without weight restrictions, becomes a designated highway of the same class as the highway from which the traffic is being detoured, during the time that it remains a marked detour.
