Culvert replacement to take about 3 weeks to complete

PADUCAH, Ky. (News First)  The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) plans an extended closure of KY 795/Scale Road in Marshall County starting Tuesday, June 11, 2024.

KY 795/Scale Road will be closed at mile point 4.3 to replace a culvert.  This is along KY 795/Scale Road between Milliken Mill Lane and Maple Hill Church of Christ, just less than a mile south of KY 782/Salyer Creek Road.

The roadway at this worksite is expected to close promptly at 7 a.m., CDT, Tuesday.  KY 795/Scale Road is expected to remain closed until Wednesday, July 3.

There will be no marked detour.  Motorists may self-detour via U.S. 641, U.S. 68, and KY 782.

Message boards are in place to alert the public to the closure location immediately south of Milliken Mill Lane.

KYTC District 1 and the Marshall County Highway Maintenance Crew will attempt to provide timely updates should the work be completed earlier than expected.
