Water over state highways, county roads

The Cave In Rock Ferry closed Thursday evening due to flooding along the Ohio River. 
Water is over the road in several spots along the approach to the ferry landing at the 
end of Ky. 91 North. The ferry is expected to be closed more than a week.

In Crittenden County, numerous county roads were already closed this morning due to flooding, but earlier this morning, Keith Todd, spokesman for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KyTC), reported two state highways with water over the road.

Ky. 1917 has water over the road between the 1.3 and 1.6 mile-points. Signs are posted.

Additionally, Ky. 91 North is closed at mile-point 10.5 near the Cave In Rock Ferry landing. The ferry is also closed due to the still-rising waters of the Ohio River. The ferry is expected to be closed at least a week and probably several days longer.

County roads closed at this time include:
  • Blackford Church Road
  • Cool Springs Road
  • Elizabethtown Ferry Road
  • Enon Church Road
  • Phin Croft Road
  • Providence Road
  • Irma-White Road

Also in Livingston County, KyTC reports both Ky. 137/River Road and Ky. 1436 closed due to flooding. River Road is closed from the intersection at Ky. 763 to the 15 mile-marker. Ky. 1436 is closed at the Ky. 137 intersection.
