FRANKLIN COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — Officials in Franklin County say Old Lawrenceburg Rd/KY 420 has reopened following a water main break.

Around 2:30p.m. on Sunday the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet reported that 2 lanes were shut down on KY 420 at KY 676 due to excessive water over the roadway.

KYTC officials later said a water main break was causing the issues.

The Frankfort Plant Board and Highway Department both reportedly responded to deal with the issue.
