Making way for a new road

A portion of Scott County Road 2 near the east entry into New Market near the New Market Area Hall was closed on October 10 so crews could reconstruct the road. It was rescheduled to reopen on Monday, Oct. 17, but was open to traffic by the weekend. The work is part of a larger project to reconstruct the road, beginning where it connects to Interstate Highway 35 to just past New Market. Part of the work includes construction of a three-lane highway, with turn lanes, through New Market.
