PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says P&L Railroad plans to close KY 2187/Husbands Road on Paducah’s Southside due to a broken rail in the crossing at mile point 2.589.
This rail crossing is on KY 2187/Husbands Road just south of the KY 284/Bridge Street intersection between Bridge Street and Dixie Avenue.
A rail crew will wait until after the morning school bus run to close the crossing. At this time, KYTC says they expect to close the crossing by about 9 a.m. KY 2187/Husbands Road is expected to remain closed at this site for about six to seven hours to allow repairs to be completed.
