Paving crews will close I-64 eastbound ramp to southbound I-265
Construction crews for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s I-Move Kentucky project will close the ramp from I-64 eastbound to I-265 southbound overnight. The closure of the ramp will allow crews to mill the existing roadway and replace the asphalt in preparation for the eventual widening of the Gene Snyder Freeway (I-265).
Work on the ramp at Exit 19A will begin Friday night and continue through Saturday morning. The ramp will be closed from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m., and a detour will be in place. Access will be maintained for emergency vehicles.
Signage and flaggers will be in place to alert drivers of the ramp closure. Detour signs will reroute traffic through the other ramps of the interchange, using I-265 northbound and I-64 westbound to reach another ramp for I-265 southbound ramp.
I-265 lane closures continuing
Potential lane closures also remain in effect though a stretch of I-265, just south of the interchange.
Milling and asphalt work is underway on I-265, between the I-64 ramps and the Taylorsville Road interchange. The work zone runs from mile point 23 to mile point 25 of I-265. Nightly lane closures of one lane in either direction will be in place between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m.
The planned closures are tentative and may be affected by weather.
*Note: the originally planned closure for Thursday, June 4 was moved to Friday, June 5 due to inclement weather.
