LYON COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - Kentucky Highway 93 in Lyon County has re-opened following extensive roadwork to repair a landslide.
According to Kentucky Transportation Cabinet officials, the heavy rains that led to near-record flooding across the region saturated the soil on a part of KY 93 causing the roadway to sink as much as 10 feet along a 1500 foot section of highway in the Eddy Creek area.
In recent weeks, crews repaired the damage and re-paved the road, and the section of KY 93 re-opened Friday afternoon.
However, motorists are asked to use caution through the weekend as guard rails have yet to be installed.
Highway personnel and a contractors will be back at the landslide site on Monday to install that guardrail and compete the remaining work.
