A citizen noticed a break in the pavement and reported it. Kentucky Transportation Cabinet personnel checked the location and found recent heavy rains had damaged a cross drain. The cross drain has to be replaced immediately.
The roadway is expected to close about 9 p.m. and remain closed for four to six hours tonight.
Flaggers will direct motorists to a detour via Ky. 902 at Fredonia to Ky. 855, then via Ky. 70 to return to U.S. 641 at Mott City.
The crew will likely replace the cross drain tonight, then be back at the site in the morning with lane restrictions for finish work.
