Some roads in the Local 6 area are closed due to flooding. We will be updating this list.

Toy York Road from Main Street to Church Grove Road in Marshall County, Kentucky is closed due to a washed out bridge.

KY 348/Wadesboro Road is closed due to flood damage between mile point 0 at the Graves-McCracken County line eastward to mile point 1.2 at the KY 405/Oaks Road intersection. Flooding has washed out 3 or more cross drains along that portion of road. Repairs cannot be made until the floodwaters have receded. It could take several days for the water to drop enough to allow repairs to start.
