Update: 5:53 EDT

Officials say Southbound 65 at Bonnieville has been re-opened, but delays will continue for about an hour as traffic unwinds.  

Original post:

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has issued an advisory following a second crash Friday on I-65:

I-65 SB is closed at mile point 71 (Bonnieville) due to a crash.

Closure is expected to last 2+ hours.  Motorists should consider exiting I-65 at Etown (exit 91), Glendale (exit 86) or Sonora (exit 81) to US 31-W and continue south.  Due to the increased volume along US 31-W, local traffic should use additional caution, especially at intersecting roads.

Another option for motorists traveling through on I-65 is exit 91 onto Western Kentucky Parkway to Natcher Parkway and rejoin southbound I-65 in Bowling Green.

Exit 91 to Hodgenville and then south on US 31-E is another alternate route.
