Whitesburg KY

Crossings closed for repairs

The CSX railroad crossing on KY 15 at Isom was expected to be closed Wednesday (June 25) so that concrete panels on the road could be replaced and refurbished.

Jay Rutherford, CSX roadmaster for Perry, Knott, Letcher, and Floyd counties, said the work would start at 9 a.m. and be finished by 5 p.m. It was expected to take only one day. Flaggers will detour traffic to old Highway 7.

Rutherford’s crew is working in Letcher and Perry counties this week patching six crossings: two at Slemp, one near Colson, one at Letcher, and two at Rockhouse Public Road in Hazard.

“These repairs are necessary and we apologize for the temporary inconvenience to motorists,” Rutherford said.
