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.
