Kentucky Transportation Cabinet to provided updated Water Over Road reports as flooding continies


River levels along our counties are expected to remain elevated and fairly steady over about the next week. As water levels have fluctuated, several highways had Water Over Road signs or Road Closed signs posted, then removed over the weekend.

Additional rainfall this week could create some additional travel issues along our highways. Please be alert for Water Over Road and Road Closed signs. They are there for your safety and the safety of others. As a reminder, you can be cited for driving around or moving Road Closed signs.

Please note that navigation lights and roadway lighting on the U.S. 62 Tennessee River below Kentucky Dam at the Marshall-Livingston County Line are off due to floodwaters threatening power lines that carry electricity to the bridge. Duration is unknown.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will attempt to provide timely updates and advance notice when floodwaters are expected to impact major highway connections.
