I-Move Week Ahead: Overnight closures planned on I-265 northbound Wednesday and Thursday
Lane closures and intermittent road closures will impact traffic on 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. Shoulder repair work and median work will require lane closures and traffic shifts overnight Wednesday and Thursday on I-265 northbound. Work to install overhead sign trusses will require intermittent road closures tonight (Wednesday).
On Wednesday from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Thursday morning, traffic will be reduced by one lane on I-265 northbound for shoulder repair work. The lane closure will begin at the I-64 interchange at mile point 25.4 and continue to Old Henry Road at mile point 28.8.
On Wednesday from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Thursday morning, intermittent road closures will occur on I-265 northbound while new overhead sign trusses are installed. The short-term closures will start at Taylorsville Road at mile point 23.1 and continue to Shelbyville Road at mile point 26.8.
On Thursday from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Friday morning, traffic will be reduced by one lane on I-265 northbound for shoulder repair work. The lane closure will begin at Old Henry Road at mile point 28.8 and continue to Shelbyville Road at mile point 26.8.
Starting Thursday at 8 p.m., traffic will be shifted to the right on I-265 northbound for work on the median. This traffic shift will be in place for several months starting near Aiken Road at mile point 27.7 and continuing to Old Henry Road at mile point 28.8.
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.
Other I-Move Kentucky Work Areas
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.
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.
