FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky Transportation Cabinet weigh station along eastbound Interstate 64 in Shelby County has been closed.
The state says the weigh station will stay closed until a new facility is built on the existing site.
Officials say the weigh station will be closed for at least four months.
The old facility was built in the 1960s, and nearly 16,000 trucks rolled across its scales each month.
Message boards along eastbound I-64 will notify truckers of the closed weigh station. Safety barrels will be placed on the weigh station's entrance and exit ramps to prevent traffic from driving through the facility.
