NEWS RELEASE

Floodwaters have been slowly rising along US 60 between the 25 and 26 mile marker in UNION County near the Union-Henderson County Line.

After holding at the edge of the pavement through much of the night, floodwaters have inched out a few feet into to the driving lane.  While the water is only an inch or two deep, it creates a hazard for traffic along this section as motorists maneuver around these spots.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Union County Highway Mainteance Crew has placed Water Over Road signs at a couple of locations along this section near Royster’s Curve and Highland Creek.

Motorists traveling this section of US 60 near the Union-Henderson County Line between Waverly and Corydon are advised to slow down and use extra caution.   At this time, the roadway is open with water into the driving lane at a couple of locations.

KYTC personnel will be carefully monitoring floodwaters in this area through the day and provide regular updates as appropriate.
