Temporary ramp closure set for Versailles Rd. in Franklin County

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) is advising motorists of the temporary closure of the entrance ramp from westbound US 60 (Versailles Road) to westbound Interstate 64 in Franklin County, according to a news release.

This ramp closure is scheduled for this weekend due to concrete pavement repairs. The entrance ramp from westbound US 60 to westbound I-64 will be closed from 7:00 p.m. on Friday until 5:00 a.m. on Monday.

Drivers should follow the signed detour via westbound US 60, KY 676 (East-West Connector) and US 127 then reconnect with westbound I-64. The ramp from eastbound US 60 to westbound I-64 will remain open during this work.

The work is part of a $2.6 million project to resurface all lanes on Interstate 64 between the two Frankfort exits (mile points 53 to 58) and repair concrete pavement at three of the ramps at the I-64/US 60 interchange (Exit 58). Contract crews are also cleaning the ditches along I-64 between mile points 53 and 58.

Asphalt resurfacing will begin later this month. Interstate lane closures are restricted to weeknights from 7:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. the following morning and on weekends from 7:00 p.m. on Friday until 7:00 a.m. on Monday.

The speed limit will be reduced to 55 mph in the work zone and double fines will be enforced. Construction is scheduled for completion sometime in July.
