LOTTS CREEK, Ky. (WKYT) - Officials are working to clear a rock slide in Knott County that happened late Saturday night.

Both lanes of Kentucky 1088, also known as Lotts Creek Road, were blocked Sunday morning.

The rock slide is across from the Cordia School, northeast of Hazard.

Crews were out all night trying to get one lane clear, but officials say both lanes won't be open until at least Monday.

The transportation cabinet says when one lane has been cleared, they'll install a temporary traffic signal to direct traffic.

They ask you to avoid the area if you can, until both lanes are back open.
