Ongoing traffic impacts: 

The intersection of Pleasant Valley Rd. (KY 237) and Thunder Ridge Dr. remains closed.

As a reminder, traffic wishing to enter the roundabout should always yield to traffic already circling the roundabout.  

Wednesday, June 16 - Friday, July 16: 

Ongoing work to improve roadway connections in the Mt. Zion Rd. interchange area will require a temporary road closure on Investment Way for approximately one month.

Beginning June 16, Investment Way will be closed. Access to the area will be via Demia Way, Sherwood Lakes Drive, or Biltmore Boulevard. The closure is expected to remain in place through Friday, July 16.

KY 338 (Richwood Road) Double Crossover Diamond (DCD) interchange and SPUI – Work is in progress. Traffic on U.S. 25 is in a new traffic pattern as work continues within the project area.

Ongoing Traffic Reminders: 

The right lane of I-71/75 northbound is closed from approximately one-half mile south of the Richwood Rd. (KY 338) exit to the bridge over Frogtown Rd. (The length of the closure is approximately one mile.) This closure is expected to remain in place through the end of the year while improvement work continues in the northbound ramp area. 

Crews are working along Richwood Rd. (KY 338) between Triple Crown Blvd./Grand National Blvd. and Dixie Hwy. (US 25), and along the US 25 corridor. Occasional lane closures may occur, but traffic will be maintained with flaggers when needed. Please be aware of construction vehicles entering and exiting the project area. 

Crews also are continuing work on Best Pal Dr., Winning Colors Dr., and Triple Crown Blvd. weekdays between 7 a.m. - 5 p.m. During this time, temporary road closures may be needed, and short-term detours will be put into place. 

Railroad Crossings Update: 

The Old Lexington Pike railroad crossing just south of Richwood Rd. is closed.

All traffic will use Chambers Rd. to access US 25 and I-71/75. Temporary traffic signals have been installed at the intersection of Chambers Rd. and US 25 to help improve traffic flow. (Signals will remain flashing until operational.)

This traffic pattern is expected to be in place throughout the duration of our construction work, which is scheduled to continue through 2022, but options to reduce the length of this closure are being evaluated.

The railroad crossing at Richwood Rd. and US 25 is now permanently closed. 

During construction, traffic will cross the railroad tracks at the intersection of Shorland Dr./Winning Colors Dr., where new traffic signals are operational and timed to help ease congestion and support traffic flow through the intersection. 

This closure is needed so that temporary railroad tracks can be built in the project area to allow for major intersection improvements at Richwood Rd. and US 25.
