I-Move Traffic Alert: Major Traffic Switch at the I-64/I-265 Interchange Planned for Sunday


A major traffic switch for the existing I-64 East to I-265 North ramp is scheduled for Sunday, June 9. This work is part of the I-Move Kentucky project. 

The ramp from I-64 West to I-265 North will be closed on Sunday to complete tie-ins related to the new ramp opening. The ramp from I-64 West to I-265 North (Exit 19B) will open again at approximately 6 p.m., Sunday. 

Beginning at 6 a.m. Sunday, I-64 East will be down to one lane beginning at Blankenbaker Parkway to allow crews to relocate existing signs and remove old signage. When complete, I-64 East will reopen to two lanes at approximately noon. 

The new ramp from I-64 East to I-265 North (Exit 19B) will open at the same time the Exit 19B cloverleaf will permanently be closed. Work should be completed by 6 p.m. on Sunday.  

Exits 19A and 19B on I-64 will have brief closures to traffic to complete proper lane assignment and striping for the new ramp. These closures will be in place from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. 

Signage will be in place to alert drivers of the new I-265 exit pattern starting at Hurstbourne Lane to Blankenbaker Parkway. A message board will also be up to alert drivers that Exit 19B will be closed starting Sunday.  

Work may be adjusted due to weather or other unforeseen events. 

Drivers should use caution when traveling through active work zones.
