Fences Being Installed to Limit Rock Falls
Posted: 12-Jan-2003 3:38PM CST

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is installing high-strength fences along some highways in Eastern Kentucky to limit the effects of rock falls. The fences are designed to catch falling debris and prevent it from blocking the road. These fences have already been installed along a section of Kentucky 1274 in Menifee County and are being installed along a section of US 23 in Pike County. Rock falls are common along highways in Eastern Kentucky. Recently, a rock fall on KY 1460 closed the highway for two days.
