I-Move Traffic Alert: Long-Term Traffic Split Planned for I-265 North Lanes Starting Thursday; I-265 Lane Closure Wednesday
Work on Interstate 265 (Gene Snyder Freeway) will require a lane closure Wednesday, Sept. 14, and a long-term split of the northbound lanes of I-265 starting the evening of Thursday, Sept. 15, as part of the I-Move Kentucky project.
From 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Wednesday, the right lane of I-265 North between I-64 and Old Henry Road will be closed for guardrail replacement.
Beginning at 8 p.m. Thursday, crews will split northbound driving lanes on I-265 between the I-64 interchange and the Shelbyville Road interchange. During this phase of the project, all traffic needing to exit onto I-64 or Shelbyville Road must use the right lane.
Left-lane traffic will be moved across the median to utilize current southbound lanes, and barrier walls will be in place to separate northbound and southbound traffic.
This will be a long-term split to replace asphalt with concrete on a high traffic area of I-265 North. It will not reduce capacity for regular traffic, but a width restriction will be in place for this area during construction.
Work schedules may be adjusted due to weather or other unforeseen events.
Motorists should be cautious when traveling through active work zones. Signage will be in place to alert drivers of the lane split.
