ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (Feb. 22, 2021)  Kentucky Transportation Cabinet highway crews are using a break in winter weather conditions to address maintenance issues this week along state maintained routes.

Tuesday, on Interstate 65 in Hardin County, crews will be closing left and center northbound lanes to collect survey data for improving drainage between Exit 91 and the US 31W overpass. At the same time, another crew will be repairing a large pothole in the northbound center lane just north of the survey location. Southbound lanes will not be affected. Work will begin at approximately 9am and should be complete by Noon. Motorists should pay close attention to signage and be prepared to merge into the right lane upon approaching the Exit 91 vicinity. Expect slow moving and/or stopped traffic ahead.

Other maintenance crews throughout the district will also be using this week to fill potholes. Motorists should expect to see these activities in various locations and be prepared to slow down or stop for the safety of everyone.
