Traffic will be impacted near I-265 interchange
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet continues to make progress on the I-Move Kentucky project as crews work in several areas of I-71, I-64 and I-265. Work on an I-265 bridge and installation of overhead signage will require overnight lane closures this week.
From 8 p.m. until 6 a.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, traffic will be reduced in one lane on I-71 northbound and southbound to conduct work on the I-265 bridge overhead. Intermittent lane closures will take place between Springdale Road at mile point 8.7 and Chamberlain Lane at mile point 9.8.
From 8 p.m. Wednesday until 6 a.m. Thursday, the new C-D lane of I-71 southbound and ramps to I-265 northbound and southbound will be closed to install overhead signage. The closure will take place in the C-D lane at mile point 9.1.
Work schedules may be adjusted due to weather or other unforeseen delays. Drivers should be cautious when traveling through active construction areas. Signage and flaggers will be in place to alert drivers of lane closures and construction zones.
