A portion of Oak Grove is under a boil water advisory until further notice.
A news release from City Hall says Oak Grove Utilities customers living on the west end of Walter Garrett Lane near 41A and in the Mace Lane area should boil their water for three minutes before use.
The water isn’t believed to be contaminated, but tie advisory was issued out of caution after a water main had to be repaired near the north end of Mace Lane. Crews will flush the line once repairs are complete and the advisory will be lifted once the water is determined to be completely clean.
The increased speed limit on US 68 wasn’t the only local roadway improvement announced when Governor Steve Beshear came to Christian County Tuesday.
The Governor announced a turn lane will be constructed on the bypass in the coming months to turn left into the Eagle Cove Subdivision.
Governor Beshear said construction should begin sometime in the spring.
Local officials have been lobbying for the improvements as the area has become an area for congestion when vehicles are waiting to make the left turn.

Clarksville Police have found the man they say is responsible for a bank robbery Tuesday afternoon.
Charged with aggravated robbery is 44-year old Troy Anthony Bobo of Lylewood Road, Clarksville. Photos from the robbery circulated through media from across Kentucky and Tennessee and Clarksville Police Officer Brian Coghill was able to look at the photo and identify the alleged robber as Bobo.
Officers surrounded Bobo’s home Wednesday night to execute a search warrant when the suspect reportedly jumped from a second story window in an attempt to get away. Police detained Bobo and he was taken to Gateway Medical Center for non-life-threatening injuries.
He’ll be lodged in the Montgomery County Jail on 150-thousand dollars bond once he is medically cleared.
