Washed Out Barriers Cause Concern For Drivers

The Kentucky Department of Transportation is working to re-install barriers along a curve on KY 467 in Gallatin County.

The four ton barriers were first put up in January, one month after a family of five was killed when their car flipped into Eagle Creek. Eagle Creek runs beside the road.

But recent heavy rain has pushed the barriers down.

The Department of Transportation has temporarily put up barrels to warn drivers of the dangerous curve.

On Monday, officials will put new barriers up and try to work on a better way to secure them.

    This should go to show how powerful running water is during storms and that you should NEVER cross through water with your car or your body during storms. If it can push 4-ton barriers out of the way (that's 8000 pounds to most of you), it can easily wipe out a 2000 pound car or your little 150-300 pound body. Stay away from water after storms, it can kill you.
