Southbound traffic on KY 453/Dover Rd. in Livingston Co. restricted due to sinkhole
LIVINGSTON COUNTY, Ky. (KFVS) - Southbound traffic is down to one lane on KY 453/Dover Road due to a sinkhole at the 4 mile marker.
According to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, this is along the four-lane section of KY 453/Dover Rd. just south of the I-24 Grand Rivers Exit 31 interchange.
All southbound traffic was moved to the right-hand or driving lane in the work zone.
While excavating at the site on Tuesday, engineers found a leaking water line beneath the road created the sinkhole.
The Grand Rivers Water Department was working on a repair plan.
KYTC personnel responded to a report of a pothole on Monday afternoon, July 12; however, while inspecting it, engineers found the hole beneath the southbound passing lane extended well below the driving surface.
Drivers should use caution in the area. Some delays are possible while the equipment is brought in.
