More traffic issus on 641 this week

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to close U.S. 641 for a period of time on Tuesday near the 2-mile marker in Crittenden County. This is at  the same place where the gas line was breached on Friday between Sulphur Springs and Lilly Dale roads.

The road will be closed starting at 7:30 a.m. and remain closed until around 2 p.m.

This closure is to allow the replacement of a cross drain. The closure is between the Mott City community and the Crayne community.

In preparation for this closure on Tuesday, there will be a work zone with one lane traffic for preliminary work at the site on Monday. This work on Monday will require one lane traffic with alternating flow controlled by flaggers.

Motorists who regularly travel US 641 between Marion and Fredonia should be prepared to encounter one lane traffic on Monday and be prepared for US 641 to be closed on Tuesday.

Passenger vehicles may self-detour via side roads. However, truck traffic should detour via Ky. 70 and Ky. 855.

Due to the size of this cross drain replacement project, Livingston County's state highway maintenance crew will be assisting the Crittenden County crew with the work.
