Sinkhole Closes Patterson Ferry Road
By West Kentucky Star Staff
MARSHALL COUNTY, KY - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has closed a section of KY 1413, Patterson Ferry Rd in Marshall County due to a sinkhole.

The Marshall County Highway Maintenance Crew had filled a small sinkhole at the site in the last few days. However, the sinkhole near the approach to the I-24 Overpass has reopened to a hole about six feet wide and six feet deep. Due to the difficulty of evaluating it in darkness, the roadway is closed to all through traffic. Engineers will return to the site during daylight hours, when it will be easier to evaluate the sinkhole and develop a repair plan.

KY 1413, Patterson Ferry Road connects US 62 and US 68 in northwestern Marshall County, near Palma. The roadway at this site will remain closed until appropriate repairs are completed.
