Rockslide Closes KY-160 in Letcher County

State transportation officials were forced to shut down Kentucky 160 in both directions in Letcher County last night.

A rockfall blocked all lanes near mile marker 16 around 630 last night. Everything was back open by around 10pm.

DOT crews say the debris will remain off to the side of the road until it gets picked up later today. They are urging drivers to be cautious through that stretch this morning.
