men at workMURRAY, Ky. (4/8/14) — Several highways and streets in downtown Murray have been closed to through traffic since a building collapsed in the 300 block of Kentucky 94/Main Street February 22.

Some of those travel restrictions are being removed this morning.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet in cooperation with the City of Murray is in the process of reopening a section of Kentucky 94/Main Street in the downtown area to through traffic.

Work to remove barricades and detour signage will continue through the morning. Work to fully reopen Kentucky 94 to through traffic should be completed around noon today.

As a reminder, a section of US 641 Business in downtown Murray will remain closed to through traffic. Truck traffic into and through downtown Murray along US 641 Business/Kentucky 121/4th Street continues to be restricted to through traffic at Glendale Road, as well as from 4th Street to Chestnut. Detour signs are in place. Local traffic may continue to access businesses in these areas via side streets.

Motorists are advised to avoid driving into oncoming lanes of travel to go around road closed barricades. Barricades and road closed signs are in place for a reason. Please drive around the block to avoid driving around road closed signs where you may encounter oncoming traffic in this area.

Timely traffic advisories for the 12 counties of KYTC Highway District 1 are available by going to www.facebook.com/kytcdistrict1. You do not have to be a Facebook member to access this page.
