Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) says there will be a temporary closure of KY 524 (Westport Road) in Oldham County between US 42 and Smith Lane, according to a press release.

This roadway will be closed for two weeks beginning Monday, April 21, at 9:00 a.m.

KYTC maintenance crews will install cross-drains underneath the roadway to intercept the flow of water draining from the hillside. Workers will also fill the ditch line with rock to prevent further erosion.

Local access will be allowed during this work. Through traffic must follow the signed detour via Smith Lane.

This section of KY 524 is scheduled to reopen by 9:00 a.m. on Monday, May 5.

The date and duration of work may be adjusted if inclement weather or other unforeseen delays occur.
