FLEMINGSBURG, Ky. (AP) - Officials are closing a portion of a northeastern Kentucky highway for bridge repairs.

Kentucky 560, also known as Metcalf Mill Road, in Fleming County will be closed for about two months beginning Monday.

Transportation officials say the bridge over Johnson Creek near the Mason County line has deteriorated concrete beams that must be removed and rebuilt. The Transportation Cabinet has awarded a $621,512 contract to The Walker Company to do the work.

They will start removing the bridge on Monday and the road will be closed at the construction site.

All through traffic will be detoured along Kentucky 165 and US 68.

The road is expected to reopen by early November.
