Numerous Kentucky Roads Remain Closed

By Dan Modlin, Kentucky Public RadioKentucky Transportation Cabinet officials say high water continues to create hazards on roadways across the commonwealth.                        Spokesperson Keith Todd says it may be several days before all roadways are passable."There will be lots of places out there that our people will be going and checking where there’s been damage to roadways.  So we just need everybody as they’re getting out to be extra cautious.   We’re probably going to continue to have water problems through about the middle of the week."  he said.Todd says motorists should avoid driving across roadways that are water-covered.   Damage to roadways may not be apparent because of the high water.    Motorists are being advised to avoid the Nashville, Tennessee area, which was especially hard it.     Floodwaters are blamed for at least two deaths in Kentucky.  (Photo courtesy of the National Weather Service, Louisville)
