Week Ahead: Construction work requires overnight lane closures on I-71 Tuesday and Wednesday

Traffic will be impacted near I-265 interchange

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. Work on an I-265 bridge and installation of overhead signage will require overnight lane closures this week.

From 8 p.m. until 6 a.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, traffic will be reduced in one lane on I-71 northbound and southbound to conduct work on the I-265 bridge overhead. Intermittent lane closures will take place between Springdale Road at mile point 8.7 and Chamberlain Lane at mile point 9.8.

From 8 p.m. Wednesday until 6 a.m. Thursday, the new C-D lane of I-71 southbound and ramps to I-265 northbound and southbound will be closed to install overhead signage. The closure will take place in the C-D lane at mile point 9.1.

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-Move Kentucky to open new collector-distributor lane on I-71

New traffic pattern from I-71 S to I-265 will begin later this week

I-Move Kentucky will open a new collector-distributor (C-D) lane on I-71 facilitating ramp movements to and from I-265 this week. This marks a significant milestone in the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s transformative project, which includes upgrades to I-71, I-265 and I-64 to improve safety and ease traffic flow.

Motorists moving from I-71 southbound to I-265 will notice the new traffic pattern and available exit ramps when the final shift is made overnight Wednesday. Intermittent ramp closures will take place at the interchange between Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday evening to relocate barrier walls and install striping before the final shift is made.

Update: Due to weather Wednesday, this shift will not take place until later in the week. Check back for updates.

Ongoing construction in the I-Move Kentucky project will also require lane closures on I-71 and I-265 this week. Each night from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. the following morning this week, I-71 southbound will be reduced to one lane from mile point 12 to near Chamberlain Lane near mile point 9.8. I-265 northbound and southbound will be reduced to one lane from the I-64 eastbound exit at mile point 25.4 to Shelbyville Road at mile point 26.8 while work to install temporary barrier walls continues.

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 new traffic patterns, closures and construction zones.

The new C-D lane is the first major segment of the four-year, $180 million I-Move Kentucky project to be completed. The heavily traveled corridors in Jefferson and Oldham will be better connected, safer and more driver-friendly when construction is completed. I-Move Kentucky is the state’s largest and most significant transportation project since the Ohio River Bridges Project. Construction began in May 2020 and is on schedule for completion in late 2023.

About I-Move Kentucky

I-Move Kentucky will improve safety and relieve congestion in three heavily traveled corridors and address several of Kentucky’s most significant transportation needs. An innovative Design-Build approach is being used to combine four major Kentucky Transportation Cabinet projects into one. Improvements include: expanding I-265 from four lanes to six lanes from the I-71 interchange to Taylorsville Road; expanding I-71 from four lanes to six lanes from I-265 to Kentucky 329 in Oldham Co.; adding a collector-distributor lane on I-71 at the I-265 interchange; and rebuilding the I-265/I-64 interchange.
