LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says a section of Interstate 65 South in Louisville will be closed this weekend for safety improvements and maintenance.

Officials say work crews will install a high-friction surface treatment to improve skid resistance and reduce crashes and they will replace asphalt pavement joints on bridges.

Motorists traveling to the area from southern Indiana will be detoured to I-64 West and I-264 East, where they can reconnect with I-65 South.

The agency says I-65 North is tentatively scheduled for closure Oct. 20-23.
