LOUISVILLE, KY (March 8, 2021) - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) District 5 Office advises motorists of pavement work scheduled to begin on Interstate 264 (Shawnee Expressway) in western Jefferson County this week. KYTC Contractors will be performing diamond grinding work starting tomorrow, March 9. Diamond grinding provides a smoother riding surface for drivers.

Lane closures will continue until grinding work is complete. This work is part of an on-going pavement project that began in 2020. The project is scheduled to be completed by fall 2021.
