Interstate 265 ramp closures scheduled for April 5-7
Louisville, KY (April 1, 2013) - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) District 5 Office advises motorists of ramp closures on I-265 as part of the pavement repair project between KY 146 (LaGrange Road) and Interstate 71 (mile points 30.3 and 34.7). Contract crews will be performing concrete pavement repairs at the KY 22 interchange.
The exit ramp from northbound I-265 to KY 22 (Exit 34) will be closed from 8:00 p.m. on Friday, April 5 until 6:00 a.m. on Monday, April 8. Motorists should follow the signed detour via two of the loop ramps in the I-265/I-71 interchange.
The speed limit in the work zone is reduced to 55 MPH and double fines will be enforced.
Hall Contracting, Inc. was awarded the contract for this project in the amount of $5.9 million. As part of this contract, all work on I-265 north of KY 22 must be completed by June 3, 2013 to avoid conflicts with construction of the east end crossing for the Louisville Southern Indiana Ohio River Bridges Project. The remainder of the work is scheduled for completion by August 1, 2013.
The actual starting date and duration of this work may be adjusted if inclement weather or other unforeseen delays occur.
