A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for Eastern Kentucky through Friday evening. Heavy rain is possible through Friday as a strong storm system moves through the mountains. Flash Flooding is likely during this time. Remember if you come across a flooded roadway to turn around and don't drown. Keep it with WYMT for the latest.
KNOX COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT/WYMT) - Daniel Boone Drive in Barbourville and the bridge that runs across it are now closed for repairs.
Road crews are in the process of making that road three lanes to help with traffic flow.
Daniel Boone Drive is heavily traveled, and this closure is expected to cause backups in town. Officials are urging people to give themselves extra time to get where they are going.
The work is expected to last through September 1st.
