Guardrail to be installed at intersection in McCracken County

Traffic will be down to one lane at Husbands Road and the Clark Line Road intersection in McCracken County on Monday.

A contractor will be putting in a new guardrail and adding soil over the next week.

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet spokesman Keith Todd says 25 crashes have been reported in that spot over the lave five years. Nine of those crashes involved injuries.

The work zone is about a mile south of exit 11 on Interstate 24.

Two recent crashes at the site knocked out a section of the guardrail.

Todd says because the road is on a hill, some drivers don’t see the road curves to the left when you get to the intersection.

Along with the new guardrail, crews will also be adding signage and traffic stripping in the area.
