Embankment slips away, closing portion of road

An embankment slip has forced the Kentucky Department of Highways to reduce KY 1722 in Rowan County to one lane between the US 60 and KY 801 intersections.

The roadway, which serves approximately 350 vehicles per day in the Farmers area, will remain one lane overnight and until repairs are complete.

Road work is subject to change depending on weather conditions. Motorists are asked to “Drive Smart” in work zones and remain aware of workers and construction equipment when traveling.
