KY 1523/Industrial Parkway will be closed at mile point 7.7 to allow upgrades to a double railroad crossing. The crossing is along the east leg of KY 1523 about 1/2 mile north of the East 5th Avenue intersection.
The rail crossing at this location will close promptly at 8 a.m., CDT, on Monday. Due to excavations and placement of equipment required to facilitate the work, KY 1523/Industrial Parkway is expected to remain closed until sometime on the afternoon of Thursday, Oct. 19.
There will be no marked detour. Motorists may self-detour via KY 262/Gilbertsville Highway, KY 95/Main Street, and U.S. 62. Trucks should seek an approved state route based on their gross weight.
P&L Railroad and KYTC District 1 will attempt to provide timely updates should the work be completed earlier than expected.
