Overnight storms washed out part of Ky. 1167 in the Craney Creek area of Rowan County near Morehead and closed the road to all through traffic, the state Transportation Cabinet said Sunday. The washout occurred around an 8-foot culvert between the 8 and 9 mile markers.
According to the press release, all through traffic on Ky. 1167 must detour using Elliottville Road and reconnect using Ky. 3317 or Ky. 173, or alternate local routes. Local traffic may use Ky. 1167 up to the point where it's closed at the damaged culvert. It's unclear when the road will reopen.
