Safety Improvement Project on Interstate 65 will result in the Interstate to close to accommodate the work near Downtown.

Louisville, KY (September 5, 2017) – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) recently awarded a contract for safety improvements on Interstate 65 in Jefferson County. A high-friction surface course will be installed on I-65 between the Chestnut Street and Muhammad Ali Boulevard exits.

In addition to the safety improvements, asphalt pavement joints will be replaced on the I-65 bridges between I-264 (Watterson Expressway) and the Chestnut Street exit. This work will provide a much smoother driving surface for motorists and provide some waterproofing benefit to the bridges and roadway.

The interstate will be closed between I-64 and I-264 (mile markers 130.6 to 136.4).

Motorists will be detoured via I-64 West to I-264 East and then reconnected with I-65 South.

Full closure of I-65 will not be permitted on University of Louisville home football game weekends.

All work must be completed by November 15, 2017.
