Kentucky 8 Closed by Landslide

May 8, 2012

Ledger Independent reports that motorists who use Kentucky 8 in Maysville as their main travel route need to find a detour for the next several days. Due to a landslide west of Maysville and east of the William Harsha Bridge that occurred Saturday night, officials with the Kentucky Department of Highways have closed the roadway through at least Wednesday. The closure is necessary so highway crews and contractors can work to clean up the dirt and debris and to also cut down trees that are leaning on the hillside.
