Repairs on I-65 South in Hardin County Will Cause Delays

Aug 20, 2013

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is warning motorists to be prepared for possible delays this week and next along the southbound lanes of I-65 in Hardin County:

Contract crews are making repairs along concrete sections of southbound Interstate 65 in Hardin County, requiring closure of two lanes.  Only one lane will be available for southbound travel from mile point 103 (Rolling Fork River Bridge) to mile point 100 (just south of KY 313/Joe Prather Highway).

Work will take place over the next two weeks, Sunday night through Thursday morning.  Lengthy delays are possible during this time, especially mid and late day.  Motorists should watch for stopped and slow moving traffic ahead.  Those who seek an alternate route may use the following:

-         Exit 105 at Lebanon Junction on to KY 61, to US 62, to KY 52, to Bluegrass Parkway and rejoin I-65 in Elizabethtown

All lanes will be open from Thursday afternoon through Sunday afternoon to better accommodate higher traffic volumes.

Drivers are asked to minimize any potential for distracted driving and pay close attention to electronic message boards and road signs when approaching the work zone.

Additional advisories and updates will be distributed regarding this maintenance project as the work schedule progresses.

Northbound work from earlier this week along the section is complete.
