CARTER COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ) – Travelers should be aware of a detour caused by what appears to be a five vehicle crash on I-64 at the 168 mile marker. Both eastbound lanes are blocked in the area near the Carter County fairgrounds just west of Grayson.
All eastbound I-64 traffic will be rerouted for the next several hours. Those heading east on I-64 should get on Exit 161 at Olive Hill to US 60 east to KY 1947 to return to I-64 at Exit 172 at Grayson.
Expect heavy traffic along the detour route, especially at the exits and at the KY 7 signal at Grayson. Motorists should take alternate routes if possible or be ready for delays. For those taking the detour, slow down and use extreme caution while exiting and along the route.
