A stretch of Highway 14 running south from Hwy 175 to Co. Hwy. 96 in Grundy County has reopened, but the increased detour traffic has damaged Co. Hwy S75, which is shared with Hardin County.

The damaged portion of the road is a three-mile stretch running from Libscomb to Whitten. County Engineer Taylor Roll said while traffic was instructed to detour on an eastbound route, truck and other traffic often opted to head west before turning north toward Highway 175 on a road that couldn't handle it.
