Debris burn pending

Staff report

Brush piles from the clearing of Ky. 93 south of Eddyville will be burned Monday and Tuesday.

A contractor started land-clearing work early this year when a landslide threatened the roadway, according to a news release from the state Transportation Cabinet.

The contractor will have a water truck available and there will be 24-hour monitoring of the burn piles. Motorists should be aware of smoke from the burn piles and an increased level of activity along the work site.

The work zone is along Ky. 93 near the 10-mile marker between Palisades Drive and Lisanby Road.

The contractor is continuing to ramp up efforts to clear and stabilize an embankment and hillside along a section of Ky. 93 just north of the Eddy Creek area. Debris and soil along the hillside will be removed to create a sustainable slope that can be sowed in grass to help stabilize the area. 

Most of the work can be done off the roadway without interrupting traffic. There may still be lane restriction from time to time with flaggers controlling alternating flow as trucks haul away some of the excess dirt from the site. It is expected to take about two to three months to complete.
