Rehab project (mile point 31.2 to 35.2)- Milling and paving operations will continue. There will be double lane closures from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. The contractor will maintain two lanes of traffic through the daytime hours, but will manipulate traffic to complete the milling and paving of all three lanes in each direction.
KY 446 Spur Road/I-65 Ramps (Exit 28) – Ramps have temporary barrier wall and have narrow lanes with speed limit lowered to 35 mph. Traffic needs to slow down and pay attention to signs. The ramp traffic coming off I-65 NB onto KY 446 should Yield to traffic coming from I-65 southbound on that ramp. Signs and Message boards are posted with this information. Crews will continue to remove and replace the concrete with asphalt pavement. Wide loads will be restricted. Clear lane width is approximately 10 feet.
Lane closures are in place between the I-65 interchange and exit 9 while resurfacing is complete.

The speed limit has been lowered to 55 mph until the project is complete.
