RUSSELL — Southbound U.S. 23 is one lane at the Boyd-Greenup county line near Ashland as Kentucky Department of Highways work to remove a rockslide that occurred overnight.
Crews responded about 3 a.m. this morning to remove debris from travel lanes. An excavator is now being called in, which will help crews remove the remaining rock along the shoulder of the roadway.
During the cleanup, U.S. 23 south will remain one lane between the Diedrich Boulevard and Ky. 5 intersections – likely through the afternoon. Due to high traffic volumes along this area of U.S. 23, motorists should expect traffic backups and delays. Seeking alternate routes is encouraged.
