MURRAY, KY -- The Intersection of KY 821 and KY 822 will be closed to allow a power pole to be replaced.

This is the intersection of 16th and Sycamore in Murray, Kentucky.

A traffic crash at this site earlier in te day severely damaged the pole that supports a number of major utility lines and the traffic signal at that intersection. A KYTC traffic signal crew and utility crews will have to work to coordinate the replacement effort.

It will be closed for approximately 4 hours.

Kentucky Cabinet of Transportation Spokesperson Keith Todd told us they will provide a timely notice when the intersection is reopened to traffic.
