PIKE COUNTY – Monday, November 16, 2015 – On Sunday, November 22, A&C Contracting will place overhead strand for East Kentucky Network across US 23 south from Penny Road to Rockhouse, just past KY 611, in Pike County.

Work will start at 6:30 a.m., weather permitting. There are six planned crossings. It is expected that each one will take 15-20 minutes, including 15 minutes to halt traffic and five minutes to pull the strand across the highway.
