DOWNTOWN LANE CLOSURES

Beginning August 3, 2018

MSD has closed a portion of East Liberty Street and Baxter Avenue due to a sewer cave-in.

LOUISVILLE, KY – MSD received a call from Metro Safe concerning a hole in the center intersection of East Liberty Street and Baxter Avenue late this afternoon. MSD inspectors were immediately dispatched and discovered a hole in the pavement that was 5-feet by 8-feet and appeared to be growing. Initial inspections indicate that the void under the pavement is approximately 15-feet by 30-feet, and 10- to 12-feet deep.

LG&E has been notified concerning two exposed natural gas lines. The protection of these gas lines must occur before repairs can begin. MSD crews are reducing East Liberty Street to one lane, and the intersection with Baxter Avenue is partially closed.

This site is very close to a cave-in that happened in June that was the result of a break in a 30-inch brick sewer line, installed in 1871.

There is no estimate on the repair timeline. There is no interruption to sewer service in the area.
