Lane closures on I-71, I-265 in Jefferson County Thursday and Friday

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is advising drivers to plan for lane closures on I-71 and I-265 this Thursday and Friday (March 23-24).

Contract crews will be installing reflective, raised pavement markers on Interstates 71 and 265 (Gene Snyder Freeway) as part of the recent interchange improvement project in that area.

Lane closures are scheduled for Thursday, March 23 on I-71 North between the Barbour Lane overpass and I-265 (mile markers 8.0 to 8.8). Work will also extend onto the exit ramp to I-265 (Exit 9A).

Lane closures on I-265 South are scheduled for Friday, March 24 between I-71 and Westport Road (mile markers 34.7 to 32.5).

Daytime lanes closures will be used both days between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. due to the warmer temperatures needed for the epoxy that adheres these markers to the roadway.

Drivers should expect delays on these interstates and allow extra time to reach their destination.
