Motorists traveling KY 1063 in Webster County need to be aware a section of the road will be closed next week.
Kentucky Transportation Cabinet officials indicate KY 1063 will be closed to through traffic just off KY 983 between KY 983 and Choice Clark Road to allow the Lynn Fork Creek Branch Culvert to be replaced.
The road is expected to close promptly at 7:00 Monday morning and is expected to reopen to traffic around 3:30 Friday afternoon.
State transportation officials say the Webster County Highway Maintenance Crew will be working with a contractor to remove an old concrete and steel arch culvert at this site to replace it with a pre-fabricated 16 foot aluminum arch culvert, which will reduce costs and allows the culvert to be replaced in about a week rather than two months or more that might be required to build a concrete structure on site.
According to state officials, there will not be a marked detour and motorists may self-detour via KY 983 and US-41-A.
