HICKMAN COUNTY, Ky. (KFVS) - A section of KY 2569 in southeastern Hickman County reopened on Thursday, October 15.

According to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, drivers should be aware of a gravel driving surface. The repaired area will be allowed to settle before an asphalt cap is placed on the repair.

The section of KY 2569/Hollard Road has been closed between the Hickman-Fulton County line and the Purchase Parkway overpass since March 20 when flash flooding caused an extended washout along the shoulder.

Engineers with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet monitored the site through the summer months looking for dry weather to start the repairs. They said above normal rainfall delayed the repair effort.

According to KYTC, dry weather in recent weeks helped soil along the washout to dry out enough for the repairs to start this week.

KY 2569 becomes Holland Road when it enters Fulton County. KYTC said approximately 85 vehicles travel this section of KY 2569 and Holland Road in an average day.
