Bridge inspections prompt lane closures on I-75

CORBIN, Ky. (AP) — The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says to expect some lane closures on Interstate 75 in southeastern Kentucky this week.

The cabinet says the right lane of northbound I-75 at the Laurel-Whitley county line at mile point 27.9 will be closed from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. EDT Tuesday for bridge inspections.

On Wednesday, the right lane of southbound I-75 will be closed from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to finish the inspections.

The cabinet says there may be delays during the closures and asks motorists to use caution in the work zone. Inclement weather or other circumstances may alter the date and duration of the work.

The work is occurring during Work Zone Safety Awareness Week, when the cabinet urges motorists to use extra caution and slow down in work zones.
