The End of 811NOW

Kentucky 811 recently implemented a new ticketing software system, Exactix. With this advanced system, Kentucky 811 will no longer need to utilize 811NOW. Throughout the coming year, the 811NOW brand and website will be fading away.

In the upcoming months, Kentucky 811 will provide stakeholders with a few graphics and additional information to help you promote Exactix Home. Learn more about the transition away from 811NOW on our news page. Visit Exactix Home at for more information about online ticketing.
