I-65 Section To Be Shut Down For Weekend Repairs

A three-mile stretch of Interstate 65 northbound in downtown Louisville will be shut down this weekend to allow for repaving work.

The northbound lanes of I-65 from the Watterson Expressway to Chestnut Street will be closed from 7:00 this evening  until 5:00am Monday. 

Andrea Clifford with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says it’s more efficient to shut down the entire stretch than to allow limited traffic and pave one lane at a time.

As Weather Warms Up, So Does Highway Repair Work

From Stu Johnson, Kentucky Public Radio

Kentucky’s highway construction season moves into high gear this month. Crews are at work on I-64 in several eastern Kentucky counties. State Transportation Cabinet Spokeswoman Natasha Lacy says the moderate winter means there should actually be fewer road repairs.

“It will be similar probably to last summer. There will be probably less pothole repair work, because we had a mild winter. Therefore we don’t have as many potholes to of course give attention to in previous years when the weather was drastic,” she said.
