Edmonson County Road Foreman Ray Page announced during Monday's fiscal court meeting that road crews will be working on a section of Oak Grove Church Road, just on the Brownsville side of the church beginning Tuesday morning, July 11, 2017.
Page said the county road crew has plans of cutting down approximately five feet of a hillcrest that has posed a danger to drivers for years. The road immediately turns as drivers top the hill and most drivers can't see where the road actually goes until on top of it. Even while driving the speed limit of 35mph, the hill is a serious threat to drivers in both directions, especially to unfamiliar and young drivers.
Foreman Page also said that the road will remain closed through Thursday, possibly longer depending on weather and other factors.
Oak Grove Church Road is a cut-through road that intersects Mohawk Road on both the Chalybeate and Brownsville sides.
