Week Ahead: Bridge demolition work on I-265 requires nightly lane closures this week

Traffic will be impacted near Shelbyville Road

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 to demolish parts of the I-265 northbound bridge over Shelbyville Road will require lane closures several nights this week.

Nightly starting Tuesday (tonight) from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. the next morning, traffic will be reduced by one lane in each direction on Shelbyville Road while construction crews demolish parts of a bridge overhead. The lane closures will take place near the I-265 interchange at mile point 26.8.

The first phase of construction on the new north pier of the I-265 bridge continues this month. Traffic on Shelbyville Road was shifted to a new traffic pattern to enter I-265 from Shelbyville Road in May to accommodate ongoing bridge construction.

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.
