BELL COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - A landslide has caused the state highway department to close a Bell County highway.

Kentucky 74 is shut down at the hairpin curve about 9 miles west of Middlesboro.

Officials say the road will be shut down for at least two weeks.

Until the road is cleared, officials say the only way into the Frakes area is by using Kentucky 190.
