A sewage pipe started leaking on Highway 15 in Hazard on Monday.
Officials say the sewer system back up, located near the entrance to Perry County Park, is causing the road to raise up a few inches.
Maintenance personnel came to assess the problem and temporarily shut the road down.
Officials will be back Tuesday morning to repair the leak.
They say the break should not affect home owners in the area.
People are still able to drive on that part of the road, but they should proceed with caution.
Drivers can also expect delays while the break is being repaired
