The on-ramp to I-64 and I-75 at exit 113 will be closed for part of Saturday.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet said the westbound from North Broadway/Paris Pike will be blocked off tomorrow from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

This is so crew can clean the remnants of a chemical spill from a crash that happened last Friday.

Crews will excavate the shoulder, replace the soil and sew seed and straw in the affected area. 

Lexington police will be present to oversee the ramp closure throughout the cleanup.

The starting date and duration of work are dependent on weather conditions and may be adjusted for inclement weather or other unforeseen delays.
