Part of Livingston County road closed due to erosion from rain
LIVINGSTON COUNTY, KY —
A section of Shelby Store Road south of Salem in Livingston County in closed because of erosion at a couple of cross drains, according to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
KYTC spokesman Keith Todd says the road is closed to through traffic between the Livingston County and Crittenden County line at mile point 0.0 and Kitchen Road at mile point 0.667. Shelby Store Road is part of Kentucky 133, and Todd says when KY 133 enters Crittenden County at the end of state maintenance, it becomes Axel Creek Road.
Todd says some erosion was reported in that area during flash flooding last week. Highway workers made a temporary repair at the time, but Todd says additional heavy rain rolling through the Salem area Friday created more erosion damage.
Although the section of road is closed to through traffic, Todd says local access will be maintained for property owners on both sides of the closure point.
