Overturned semi shuts down road in Caldwell Co.

Posted: Updated:

An overturned semi has a busy Kentucky road shut down in Caldwell County.

Officials are reporting that semi has overturned in the southbound lanes of I-69/Former WKY PKWY at the 74.2 mm between the Princeton and Eddyville exits. 

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says I-69 will be closed for at least an hour at the site to allow removal of the truck. 

Officials say the detour will be via KY 91 and US 62, which parallels I-69 in the area.

We are told the crash has damaged the right of way and has thrown mud on the driving surface. There will likely be an extended cleanup effort which will require a lane restriction through the afternoon at the site.
