Kentucky Roads Update Sunday 5-15, 2pm

From Keith Todd, Kentucky Transportation Cabinet --

Please note that KY 365 is now OPEN to the south of Sturgis at the Union-Crittenden County Line, providing a much needed north-south connection for Union County residents.    We anticipate that US 60 is likely to open at the Union-Crittenden County line sometime late Monday or early Tuesday.  We are asking commuters who have been parking along this section to boat across the Tradewater River to please assure they do not block the roadway on Monday morning.  Highway crews expect to be at the site early Monday to remove gravel that was used to elevate the roadway as floodwaters were rising 2 weeks ago.
