DOWNTOWN TRAFFIC ALERT
EXPECT DETOURS DOWNTOWN DUE TO ROAD CAVE-INS
Due to three cave-ins, expect delays and detours in Downtown Louisville.
Detours and delays are expected at South Hancock Street at East Madison Street, Fourth Street between Main and Market streets and Seventh Street at Main Street due to road cave-ins.
The South Hancock Street cave-in was caused by a nearly 3-foot break in a sewer line that runs under the road. MSD crews will begin working on the site at 11 p.m. Friday and will continue to work throughout the weekend.
Pavement voids are responsible for the cave-ins at Fourth and Seventh streets, MSD said. Crews have set plates over the cave-in on Fourth Street so traffic will be able to flow safely through the weekend. MSD crews have started working on repairing the Seventh Street cave-in and won’t be finished until early next week. Crews will set traffic detours near all three sites.
