Traffic Update: Lane closures begin March 25 on I-64 in Bath County
Closure slated for Rowan bridge in April
FLEMINGSBURG, Ky. – Improvements to Interstate 64 in Bath and Rowan counties will mean work zones, and traffic restrictions, beginning Monday, March 25.
Approximate work dates, locations and traffic changes include:
- March 25-April 16, one lane of I-64 will be closed eastbound and westbound at mile marker 120 (the Slate Creek-Kendall Springs Road bridge) in Bath County for bridge repairs. Work zone speed limit will be 55 miles per hour, and a width restriction of 10 feet will be in effect for all traffic.
- Through mid-April, traffic could experience intermittent lane closures between mile markers 117 and 120 in Bath County as contractors make roadway and slide repairs in advance of full paving operations.
- April 5-May 7, one lane of I-64 in Rowan County will be closed at mile marker 134.7 just west of the Morehead exit for bridge repairs. Work zone speed limit will be 55 miles per hour, and a width restriction of 10 feet will be in effect for all traffic. Other traffic restrictions are possible throughout the entire work zone – mile markers 134 to 138.
The interstate work is part of two Kentucky Transportation Cabinet projects totaling about $10 million that will include roadside repairs, new fencing, concrete bridge overlays and resurfacing to improve 10 miles of the heavily-traveled federal highway.
Motorists are advised to watch for warning signs, slow down in work zones and remain aware of workers and construction equipment when traveling.
