Lane Reduction on U.S. 31E in Jefferson County
Right lane closed for bridge repair

LOUISVILLE, KY (Feb. 25, 2021) - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) advises motorists of a lane reduction on U.S. 31E (Buechel Bypass) in Jefferson County. The right lane of the roadway is closed over the Norfolk Southern Railroad (mile marker 10.4) after KYTC bridge engineers observed deterioration on one of the pier caps of the bridge during a recent routine inspection.

The lane closure will restrict loads from the affected side of the bridge and will reduce the chance of further wear on the structure. KYTC staff are evaluating repair options for this location. The lane closure will remain in place until restoration work can be performed. This bridge carries an average of 29,000 vehicles per day.

Start: 3/15/2021
