KYTC crews contending with flood aftermath
Roads reopen but are ‘less than ideal’
FRANKFORT, Ky. (June 21, 2011) – Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) crews continue work to clear and repair roads damaged by heavy rains Monday.
Most roads in southeastern Kentucky that were closed due to slides, washouts or water over the road have reopened. But while roads are passable, they are less than ideal.
Motorists in affected areas should continue to use caution and never drive around barricades or through high water.
In addition, the KYTC is providing equipment such as pumps and dump trucks to counties that have requested them. Crews are patrolling flood-prone areas and are ready to respond to additional flooding. They also are responding to calls about flooded roads that come from law enforcement or the public at large.
