Portion of Ky. 654 to be closed Monday

A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to close a section of Ky. 654 in Crittenden County on Monday and Tuesday.

Ky. 654 will be closed at the Tribune Creek Bridge near the road's intersection with Ky. 120. This is between mile-point 0.0 and mile-point 0.092 and will allow base repair work to be followed by paving.

Ky. 654 will be closed at 7:30 a.m. on Monday. The contractor will mill out the area, then place several layers of asphalt to provide a new base layer to be followed by additional layers of asphalt to create a new driving surface on Tuesday.

The roadway will remain closed overnight. It is expected to reopen to normal traffic flow late on Tuesday afternoon.

Message boards have been place along Ky. 654 to alert motorists to this planned closure on Monday and Tuesday.
