LandslideCALDWELL COUNTY, Ky. (3/6/18) — As a reminder, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has closed a section of U.S. 62 along the Hopkins/Caldwell County line to allow work to clear and repair a landslide this morning, state highway officials reported.

U.S. 62 is closed at Caldwell County milepoint 16.5. It is expected to remain closed around the clock for approximately one week or longer to facilitate clearing of the landslide and repair of the roadway, KYTC Spokesman Keith Todd said.

The landslide impacts about a 150-foot section of U.S. 62, just west of Dawson Springs.

There will be a marked detour for drivers traveling between Princeton and Dawson Springs. Work to clear the landslide and make appropriate repairs to the roadway is expect to take at least a week, maybe longer.

U.S. 62 has been restricted to one lane at the site since the landslide started last Friday. 

Timely traffic advisories for the 11 counties of KYTC Highway District 2 are available by going to www.facebook.com/kytcdistrict2. Navigatge Traffic at GoKY.KY.Gov or at WAZE.com or via the WAZE App.
