Overturned semi blocking U.S. 641

There is a report of a SEMI overturned and blocking both lanes of US 641 in Lyon County between Eddyville and Fredonia.

This crash site is at about mile point 3.4 near the entrance to the West Kentucky Correctional Center.  The box truck is loaded with metal and may have to be off-loaded to allow the truck to be removed.

There are few detour options for this site.  At this time we are recommending travelers between Eddyville and Marion consider using KY 295 and KY 70 through the Dycusburg area as an alternate route.  The other option is via I-69 to Princeton, then take KY 91 to return to US 641 at Fredonia.

Estimated duration is 3 to 4 hours.
