Traffic Alert: Emergency Repairs on I-65 South Causing Delays
One lane of southbound Interstate 65 south of Elizabethtown has been closed for several hours while workers repair three damaged areas.
The Transportation Cabinet said Friday evening the work was complete, but officials are waiting on the asphalt to cool and expected it may reopen later Friday.
The right lane of southbound traffic was closed while the repairs were made. The cabinet advised caution in the area and said traffic was backed up and visibility was reduced because of rain, fog and traffic spray. Motorists should leave additional space between vehicles.
The cabinet was urging motorists and especially trucks to consider exiting at exit 91 and taking the Western Kentucky Parkway to the Natcher Parkway to rejoin I-65 in Bowling Green.
