kentucky trans yellow 300HENDERSON, Ky. (6/2/14) — Kentucky 136 in western Henderson County is expected to reopen to traffic late today.

Kentucky 136 has been closed near the 2 mile marker since mid-March when Ohio River floodwaters eroded a portion of the river bank causing about one third of the road surface to slide into the river.

This is along a gravel section of Kentucky 136 in western Henderson County in the Alzey Bottoms area that was flooded for an extended period over the winter months.

The Henderson County Highway Maintenance Crew has been working over the last several weeks to fill the slide and armor the area with riprap to help reduce the likelihood of future erosion at the site.

Today, the crew is constructing a berm across the top of the filled area. Engineers have requested guardrail be constructed along this section when funding is available.

Kentucky 136 is expected to reopen to traffic at about 3 p.m., today. This section of Kentucky 136 carries about 100 vehicles in an average day.

It provides access to farmland and a small campground along the river.
