Interstate 71 Rest Areas in Oldham County Closed Due to Water Pipe Damage

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) advises motorists of the immediate closure of the rest areas on Interstate 71 in Oldham County due to a disruption of water service. The rest areas, located at mile point 13, will be closed in both directions until further notice as Louisville Water Co. works to repair the damage.

The service disruption occurred when a contractor working on the I-Move Kentucky project damaged a water pipe that services the rest areas.

The rest areas will remain closed until repairs are completed.
