traffic alert icon
Due to continued deterioration of the Postell Building, the City of Hopkinsville has closed Virginia Street/US 41 between 7th Street and 4th Street.  The city plans to open one lane of Virginia Street after the Postell Building is demolished.  A demolition contractor will be on site soon and should finish demolition sometime in the late afternoon/evening of Saturday, July 9, 2016.  The contractor has experience demolishing damaged structures in similar downtown areas.

6th Street has been closed between Main Street and Virginia Street and will remain closed until other structures located on 6th Street are structurally evaluated.  The city will move as quickly as possible to minimize disruption for businesses located on 6th Street.
