Drivers to get road-work break during holiday weekend

LOUISVILLE — Orange barrels and construction signs won’t be out this weekend along interstates in the downtown crossing construction zone of the Ohio River Bridges Project.

To make the busy holiday weekend a little easier for drivers, no new scheduled interstate or ramp closures related to the downtown crossing will be in place through Monday, May 26.

“We’re in the midst of the busiest construction season Louisville has seen in 50 years,” said Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Project Manager Andy Barber in a news release. “We don’t want project closures to be a concern for drivers during one of the busiest travel holidays of the year.”

Long-term lane restrictions and closures remain in place, including the recent lane reduction on Interstate 65 North. I-65 North from Muhammad Ali Boulevard to Witherspoon Street has been reduced from three through lanes of traffic to two, with the right lane a mandatory exit to Muhammad Ali Boulevard.
