I-65 N closed this weekend in Jefferson County
Interstate to be closed to accommodate safety improvements

By Andrea Clifford, Interim Director
Office of Public Affairs, KY Transportation Cabinet
LOUISVILLE, KY (Wed 17 Oct 2017) - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) reminds motorists that a portion of Interstate 65 North will be closed this weekend in Jefferson County. This interstate shut-down is the second of two weekend closures, one in each direction, to accommodate safety improvements and other roadway maintenance.
I-65 North is scheduled for closure this weekend between I-264 and I-64 (mile markers 130.6 to 136.4). All driving lanes, exit ramps and entrance ramps will be closed in this section of roadway.
The I-65 North closure begins at from 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 20 and continues through 5 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 23. Motorists will be detoured via I-264 West to I-64 East where they can access I-65 North.
A high-friction surface course will be installed on I-65 between the Chestnut Street/Broadway and Muhammad Ali Boulevard exits, an area locally known as 'hospital curve'. This treatment will improve skid resistance and reduce crashes involving lane departures on wet pavement.
In addition, asphalt pavement joints will be replaced on the I-65 bridges between I-264 (Watterson Expressway) and the Chestnut Street/Broadway exit. This work will provide a much smoother driving surface for motorists and provide some waterproofing benefit to the bridges and roadway.
These improvements were performed on I-65 South in mid-September.
Louisville Paving and Construction Company was awarded this contract in the amount of $1.8 million. All work must be completed by November 15, 2017.
The date and duration of this work may be adjusted if inclement weather or other unforeseen delays occur. Visit goky.ky.gov for the latest in traffic and travel information in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
