Week Ahead: Overnight lane closures planned this week on I-64, I-265

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. Ongoing work near the I-64/I-265 interchange and shoulder work on I-265 northbound will require lane closures several nights this week.

Nightly starting Tuesday (tonight) from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. the next morning, traffic will be reduced by one lane in each direction (eastbound and westbound) on I-64 at the I-265 interchange while bridge work is completed and a temporary barrier wall is removed in the area. The lane closures will take place near the I-265 bridge at mile point 19.

Nightly starting Tuesday (tonight) from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. the next morning, traffic will be reduced by one lane on I-265 northbound for work on the shoulder. The lane closure will start near Aiken Road at mile point 27.7 and continue to La Grange Road at mile point 30.4.

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-265 – Work continues to widen the roadway including excavation in the median and paving operations. Ongoing work requires traffic shifts on I-265 northbound and southbound between Shelbyville Road at mile point 26.8 and Taylorsville Road at mile point 23.1. Traffic shifts to enter I-265 from Shelbyville Road to accommodate ongoing construction of new bridge piers for the I-265 bridge also continue this month. See planned traffic impacts listed above.

I-265/I64 interchange – Work continues to rebuild the interchange including a new bridge, access ramps and along I-265 near mile point 25.4. See planned traffic impacts listed above.

 I-71 – Work continues to widen to the roadway including excavation, bridge replacements, paving operations, and the installation sound barrier walls. Ongoing blasting work on I-71 northbound requires rolling lane closures and short-term road closures daily, including some weekends, between noon and 3 p.m. while blasting is completed. Shoulder closures and overnight lane closures may occur during sound barrier wall installation.

 I-71/I-265 interchange – Work continues on new bridges, access ramps and along I-71 near mile point 9.1. The new collector-distributor lane opened earlier this year to improve safety for vehicles entering and exiting the roadway.
