Week Ahead: Lane closures planned on I-265, I-71 for construction work

Traffic impacted on I-265 between I-64 and Aiken Road

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 to patch potholes and on the right shoulder will require lane closures tonight.

On Thursday from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Friday, traffic will be reduced to one lane on I-265 northbound for work on the shoulder and to patch potholes. The closure will begin at the I-64 interchange at mile point 25.4 and continue to Aiken Road at mile point 27.7.

Work continues several nights this week between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. to install sound barrier walls along I-71 southbound. The lane closure will begin near the rest area near mile point 13 and continue past Moser Farm Road at mile point 11.8.

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.
