Ky. 133 near county line closed

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has closed a section of KY 133/Shelby Store Road south of Salem in Livingston County due to erosion at a couple of cross drains.

KY 133/Shelby Store Road is closed to through traffic between the Livingston-Crittenden County Line at mile point 0.0 and Kitchen Road at mile point 0.667. When KY 133 enters Crittenden County at the end of state maintenance it becomes Axel Creek Road.

During flash flooding last week some erosion was reported in this area. Highway personnel made a temporary repair at that time. Additional heavy rain rolling thorugh the Salem area today caused further erosion damage.

KY 133/Shelby Store Road is closed to through traffic. However, Local access will be maintained for property owners on each side of the closure point.
