Tree blocking north Livingston County traffic

Kentucky state highways 133 and 137 north of Salem in Livingston County are blocked by a downed tree near Berry's Ferry Landing.    

A large tree has fallen, taking down powerlines and blocking both lanes of travel between Salem and Berry's Ferry.   

The blockage is near the Ky. 133 (River Road) and Ky. 137 intersection on the Salem side of the Berry's Ferry area.

A utility crew is en route, say Kentucky transportation officials. Once the lines are cleared, Kentucky Transportation Cabinety personnel will remove the downed tree.

The roadway could block until late morning, say transportation officials.
