Another county road has suffered a collapse as a result of a sinkhole opening underneath.
Road crews were out early this morning in the 1400 block of Knob Road digging out the collapsed area. County Road Supervisor Greg Carroll said the area to be repaired is not too far from a similar collapse on the same road that occurred on December 22, 2021.
On April 30th, Arthur Road also had to be repaired for an even larger sinkhole there.
"I don't know if it's because of all the rain we've had or not," said Carroll. "We'll be out here for the rest of the week."
The road will be closed to thru traffic until all repairs are completed, which is likely to be sometime next week. The 1400 block is near the halfway point of the road that runs from KY HWY 422 (Pig Road) to KY HWY 259 (Brownsville Road).
