RUSSELL -- US 23 is closed between Argillite Road and in Flatwoods to the Russell-Ironton Bridge until further notice.

Greenup County E-911 announced the closure and said all traffic will be detoured using Argillite Road Southbound and Ashland Drive for Northbound.

Buford Hurley, Director of Greenup County E-911, said that the closure is due to trees and powerlines down on US 23 blocking lanes.

Hurley said there have not been any injuries confirmed. 

The Daily Independent will update this story as more information becomes available.
