Ky. 11 Reopens After Mudslide

A north-south artery in Powell County that was closed by a mudslide reopened Wednesday evening, a spokesman for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet's District 10 in Jackson said. The slide brought mud and trees onto Ky. 11 after 3 to 4 inches of rain fell in about 90 minutes Tuesday night, said H.B. Elkins, spokesman for the Jackson office. While the road was closed, motorists going to Natural Bridge State Resort Park near Slade on Wednesday were asked to take a detour.
