A project on U.S. 23 in Boyd and Greenup Counties is now complete.
The road now has identification numbers at all 38 intersections with lights throughout those two counties.
The project which was paid for by the state, began a couple months ago and wrapped up just a few days ago.
It is intended to help response time to accidents and other emergency situations.
911 dispatchers can get the number from a motorist, enter it into a computer, and see whose district it is and what agency needs to respond to it.
Greenup County E-911 Center Director Buford Hurley says that especially when it is someone from out of town, they are not clear on what road they are at. He hopes a numbering system will help speed up the process of getting police and medical personnel to a scene.
"I think it is a nice idea. If you have an accident and are able to look at the numbers they could get to you quicker," said Portsmouth resident Bill Schaefer.
Greenup County E-911 says they had a situation a few days ago in which a caller reported storm damage using the number of the intersection.
