A bridge on KY 476 in the Dwarf community of Perry County has been reduced to one lane as a result of damage sustained in a vehicle accident last week.

On Sept. 17, authorities discovered that a truck had crashed off the bridge crossing Troublesome Creek at milepoint 8.75. The truck was found in the creek and the bridge rail had been torn away.

Because of the damage, traffic on the bridge is restricted to one lane. Temporary signals have been set up to control traffic. These signals will be in place indefinitely while the extent of the damage is assessed and repairs are made.

Drivers should slow down as they approach this area, watch for stopped traffic and obey the temporary traffic signal.
