Franklin County I-64 Bridge Replacement Project

To replace four sets of overpass bridges, original to the 1959 I-64 construction
​Project Scope
The project includes replacing four sets of bridges (eight existing bridges) along I-64 East and West between mile markers 47 and 52. The overpass bridges to be replaced are: 
  • KY 151/Grafenburg Road (mile point 46.4)
  • South Benson Creek (mile point 49.1)
  • KY 1665/Evergreen Road (mile point 49.8)
  • KY 2817/Cardwell Lane (mile point 51.5)
Type of Project
Each new bridge replacement will be widened to support up to three lanes of traffic, and all bridges will be replaced. 
Motorists may see barrier walls installed and shoulder closures while work is in progress. Two lanes of traffic will be maintained during daytime work (7 a.m. to 7 p.m.). Nightly lane closures are expected between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m., which will reduce the interstate to one lane and will occur intermittently for the duration of the project. 
​The contract for the project in the amount of $ 30,244,420.60 was awarded to Kay & Kay Contracting, LLC from London, Kentucky, in August 2021. 
​Project Timeline

The project's estimated completion is in Fall 2023.*

*The date and duration of this work may be adjusted if inclement weather or other unforeseen delays occur.
