Blasting along Interstate 71 is set to resume Thursday, Feb. 16, as part of the I-Move Kentucky project to expand I-71 to six lanes.
Beginning Thursday and continuing for the next several months, crews will perform regular blasting work along I-71 between Moser Farm Road near mile marker 12 and KY 329 (Exit 14). The timeframe for blasting will generally be weekdays between 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. when weather conditions are dry.
Rolling traffic stoppages will be in effect for both southbound and northbound I-71 to ensure the safety of workers and drivers. The roadway will typically reopen to traffic within 15 minutes unless debris cleanup is necessary.
Drivers should use caution when traveling through active work zones.
