The heat has caused a Madisonville road to buckle, creating a big bump in the road.

Transportation officials say part of Hopkinsville Road near the Earlington Connector buckled Saturday afternoon.

Officials sprayed water on the area, trying to cool it down and reduce the bump.

Crews were able to temporairly fix the road around noon Sunday - but will be back later in the week to for a more permanent fix.
