Drivers urged to use caution while crews replace knocked out guardrails

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is asking drivers to be careful when driving on KY 1954/Husbands Road at Clark Line Road in Paducah due to a lack of guardrails.

Keith Todd with the KYTC says two recent crashes knocked out a significant amount of guardrail.

A message board has been put up to remind drivers to use caution at the intersection and curve while new guardrails are being installed.

Engineers will also be looking at some long-term solutions to crashes at this location.

One possibility is funding through the Highway Safety Improvement Program to realign the road to make it safer.
