Mudslide Closes Road

A Jessamine County road is shutdown after a mudslide makes it unstable.

State Road 1541 also known as River Road is closed due to a mudslide. Friday's rain washed away dirt from the road and into the Kentucky River.

Witnesses say they could tell early on in the storm that something was wrong.

State engineers were on the scene Monday to access the situation. We're told the road will remain closed indefinitely until it is fixed.
