Weather may finally cooperate with NKY interstate project; lane closures this weekend

After several weeks of being cancelled due to the weather, crews will be working on an interstate project in Northern Kentucky this weekend, and motorists can expect lane closures and delays.

Traffic will be restricted to one lane on NB I-71/75 between the Dixie Highway exit 188 and the Brent Spence Bridge beginning at 11 p.m. Friday, May 20 until 5 a.m. Monday, May 23.

During the weekend closure, the northbound entrance ramp from Kyles Lane and the northbound exit ramp to 12th Street/MLK Boulevard will be closed. A signed detour will be in place.

Motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes.

Work will replace sections of concrete pavement as well as joint repair on several bridges.

The project is part of the Kentucky Transportation Department's "Revive the Drive" campaign.
