Traffic impacted near the I-64/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 a I-265 bridge over I-64 will require lane closures Saturday.
On Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., traffic will be reduced by one lane on I-265 northbound near the I-64 interchange while crews move bridge forms. The closure will begin just before the I-64 eastbound exit ramp near mile point 25 and continue to just past the I-64 interchange.
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.
Other I-Move Kentucky Work Areas
I-71/I-265 interchange – Work continues on new bridges, access ramps and along I-71 at mile point 9.1. The new collector-distributor lane recently opened to improve safety for vehicles entering and exiting the roadway. No traffic impacts are planned this weekend.
I-265/I-64 interchange – Traffic will be reduced by one lane on I-64 westbound near the I-265 interchange while bridge work is performed overhead for several weeks. The closure will begin after the I-64 westbound to I-265 northbound ramp shifting the acceleration lane for traffic merging onto the mainline roadway to the left at mile point 19. This is in addition to the traffic impact listed above.
I-71 – Blasting work on I-71 northbound and southbound is under way and continues daily. This will require rolling lane closures and short-term road closures daily, including some weekends, between noon and 3 p.m. while blasting is completed near mile point 11.8. Closures are necessary during excavation work for the safety of construction crews and the public.
Preparation work in this area is ongoing to allow for widening of the corridor and construction of a new Brownsboro Road (KY 1694) bridge over I-71. This work zone is located between mile point 10.3 and mile point 9.1 of I-71 southbound. No traffic impacts are expected this week. Crews continue to work to extend a culvert that will allow for the widening of I-71. No traffic impacts are expected as work continues between mile point 14.5 and mile point 13.5 of I-71 southbound.
