The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is encouraging area motorists who frequently travel across the railroad tracks on South Main Street in Pembroke to allow themselves some extra time Friday morning.
Spokesman Keith Todd says CSX Railroad plans to close Kentucky 115 at the railroad crossing Friday to allow the repair of a faulty rail.
There are multiple crossings in Pembroke so motorists can take their own detour on side streets, but clearance and load limits will hinder some commercial trucks from being able to cross at all in Pembroke Friday morning.
Todd says work should be completed by 3:30 Friday afternoon.

Cadiz Police are warning of a scam attempted against a resident there in recent days.
A news release says a resident received a phone call from a recorded message claiming to be from Wal-Mart. The message said the resident had won a 1-thousand dollar gift card from the store and gave instructions to redeem it by calling another phone number.
The recording said the resident would have to pay a processing fee and the gift card would be mailed. Police say this is just another in an ongoing series of scams criminals are attempting to perpetrate over the phone and through text messages.
Residents should deal with stores in person and never follow instructions where they are asked to mail or wire a processing fee.
