27 Skyfirst gets aerial view of Franklin County mudslides

Some major road blocks continue to frustrate drivers in one central Kentucky county.

Two mudslides, caused by the recent heavy rain, brought down trees, mud, and other debris across Highway 420 and Big Eddy Road in Franklin County.

From the air, you can see just how big the mudslides are.

Crews spent the day working to clean up the mess.

The biggest mudslide is on Highway 420, just off the East-West Connector in Frankfort.

This morning, crews started the difficult task of removing all the mud and the trees that came down the hill along with it.

The road isn't expected to reopen for a few days.

On nearby Big Eddy Road, the rain not only brought down the mud, it also washed away the earth under the road.

Crews can't even approach the mudslide because the road may not be strong enough to hold their equipment.

That stretch of road is closed indefinitely.
