Travel Advisory: Closure for I-65 in both directions

Motorists STRONGLY advised to seek alternate routes

By Keirsten Jaggers

BOWLING GREEN, KY (March 2, 2013) - Fatal crashes on Interstate 65 have CLOSED both directions of the road and motorists caught in the back up are being detoured off between Sonora and Glendale via US 31W.
Northbound traffic is being detoured off I-65 at Exit 81/Sonora.
Southbound traffic is being detoured off I-65 at Exit 86 Glendale.
A suggested alternate route to avoid sitting in extremely lengthy delays is the use of the Western Kentucky Parkway and the William H. Natcher Parkway.

Traveling Northbound on I-65:
  • Exit I-65 northbound at the Natcher Parkway North/Exit 20B
  • At mile marker 43, exit right towards Elizabethtown
  • Follow signs on WK Parkway east bound until juncture of parkway and I-65.
  • Exit northbound to I-65
Traveling Southbound on I-65:
  • Exit I-65 southbound at the WK Parkway/Exit 91
  • At mile marker 77, exit south towards Bowling Green
  • Follow signs on the Natcher Parkway southbound until juncture of parkway and I-65
  • Exit southbound to I-65
Updates will be provided as information becomes available. - Keirsten Jaggers, Public Information Officer, KYTC Departway of Highways, District 3, Bowling Green, KY
