COVINGTON, Ky. - Hands Pike in South Covington will be closed to traffic at Edwin Drive during business hours next week.

People who live east of Edwin Drive can access their homes from Ky. 16, those who live west will need to come from Ky. 17.
The road will be closed to through traffic at Edwin Drive from 7:30 a.m. until 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, officials said.
Once pavement repairs are complete on Hands Pike, also known as Ky. 1501, resurfacing will begin the early part of October.
