Graves County road washed out by flooding temporarily back open

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has temporarily reopened a road near the Graves County and McCracken County line that has been closed since flash flooding washed out a cross drain there. 

KYTC spokesman Keith Todd says Wadesboro Road opened around 3 p.m. Friday and will remain open through the weekend, then close again on Monday for additional repairs. The road is also a section of KY 348.

Todd says Wadesboro Road in Graves County has been closed since flash flooding washed out a cross drain between Hardmoney and Oaks Road. Repairs to the washout have been completed.

In the course of planning repairs for the washout, Todd says engineers determined another nearby cross drain had been damaged by the flooding. Replacement of that cross drain is why that same section of Wadesboro Road will be closed again on Monday.
