Downtown Ramp Closures

From April 2 – 9, 2021

Ramps closed as part of on-going improvement project.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) advises motorists of several ramp closures scheduled to begin this week in Jefferson County. As part of an on-going ramp improvement project, KYTC contractors will mill off the existing pavement, perform patching work, and then repave and restripe the ramps. The following ramps will be closed for one week, beginning at 9 a.m. on Friday, April 2:

  • The ramp from Main Street and 9th Street to I-64 East
  • The ramp from 9th Street to I-64 East

Motorists can take the following detour: Take U.S. 31W/Market Street to I-65 to reconnect to I-64 East

  • The ramp from 9th Street to I-64 West

Motorists can follow the signed detour: 9th Street to West Jefferson Street to North 21st Street to the 22nd Street ramp to I-64 West

The off ramp from I-64 West to Exit 4 (9th Street/Roy Wilkins/Market) is scheduled to re-open before rush hour this afternoon. The ramp has been closed since last week as part of this ongoing project. The contract for this work was awarded to E & B Paving LLC in July 2020 in the amount of $4,595,950.67.

The date and duration of this work may be adjusted if inclement weather or other unforeseen delays occur. Visit for the latest in traffic and travel information in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. You can also get traffic information for the District 5 counties at and
