JACKSON, Ky. (AP) — A state highway in eastern Kentucky has been closed after mud slid onto it.

Kentucky 1110 is closed in Breathitt County about a mile from Highway 15.

According to WYMT-TV (http://bit.ly/14CG5Jp ) in Hazard, about six inches of mud built up on the highway after heavy rain. Craig Chatt, who lives in the area, told the station mudslides are common along that stretch of highway.

Transportation officials closed the road, concerned that more mud or rock could slide onto it. The highway will likely be closed for couple of days.
