KYTC asks for info on vehicle that drove past closed sign, damaged concrete


The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is requesting the public's help to locate the driver of a vehicle that disregarded several road closed signs and moved a road closed barricade to drive through freshly poured concrete on KY 3061 in Hickman County on Wednesday.

That road was scheduled to reopen Wednesday east of the Nichols community after extended closures for replacement of several cross drains.

Now, the road will have to remain closed for up to two more days after someone drove around road closed signs, moved barricades, and drove through freshly poured concrete at one of the repair sites.

Due to damage to the uncured concrete, the roadway will now have to be jack-hammered and new concrete poured.

The penalty for disregarding or moving a traffic control device is about $150 per sign or barricade. Drivers can be held responsible for the cost of replacing the concrete.

Anyone with information on the vehicle that drove through the fresh concrete on KY 3061 is asked to contact the Kentucky State Police or the Hickman County Sheriff's Office.

This work zone is on KY 3061 between Brush Creek Road and the KY 307 intersection.
