Several roads still closed in northeastern Kentucky because of flooding

Drivers are still running into many closed roads across northeastern Kentucky, a day after heavy rain caused flooding.

Some roads were also damaged by the high water. Crews with the Kentucky Department of Highways are working to make repairs.

Rising backwater in Mason and Greenup counties is also causing some problems Thursday.

As of 8:30 Thursday morning, the Kentucky Department of Highways reports the following roads are closed because of flooding or storm damage:

Mason County - US 62 at Murphysville, KY 596 at milepoint 4-5.

Fleming County - KY 57 at Fleming-Lewis county line. Water has receded, and crews will begin pavement repairs today in an effort to reopen the highway.

Lewis County - KY 59 at Old Trace Road (until further notice). Floodwaters have undermined KY 59 at that location, causing hazardous conditions. Motorists and pedestrians should not attempt to cross barricades. Other closures: KY 984 at mile marker 1-2 near Fearisville.

Carter County - KY 986 at mile marker 2 between Grahn and Olive Hill (one lane traffic), KY 773 at mile marker 7 (one lane traffic).
