Weekend Report: Lane Closures Planned on I-71

Construction work planned overnight Sunday and Monday

Contractors for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s I-Move Kentucky Project will be working overnight and during the weekend to lessen impacts on daily travelers on Interstate 71 southbound.

Crews will be working along I-71 southbound, between the KY 1694/Brownsboro Road bridge over I-71 and the interchange with the Gene Snyder Freeway (I-265). As result, the left lane of I-71 southbound will be closed overnight Sunday, August 9, and overnight Monday, August 10.

The lane closure will occur between mile point 9.1 and mile point 10.2 of I-71 southbound.

Work in this area will start each night around 8 p.m. and continue through 6 a.m. the following morning. Drivers should be cautious when traveling in this area. Signage will be in place to alert drivers of lane closures and construction zones.

Work schedules may be adjusted due to inclement weather or other unforeseen delays occur.
