Interstate 75 Closure In Rockcastle County Scheduled For Feb. 8 - 9

Posted: Updated:

SOMERSET, Ky. (Jan. 31, 2018) – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) advises motorists that Interstate 75 in Rockcastle County will be closed beginning Feb. 8 to allow crews to replace bridge beams for the KY 1505 bridge reconstruction project at mile point 68.3.

The closure will begin at approximately 9 p.m. EST on Thursday, Feb. 8, and will reopen by 6 a.m. EST on Friday, Feb. 9. All southbound travel lanes along with the left (inside) northbound lane will be closed to traffic.

Motorists traveling on I-75 south will detour via Exit 76 (Berea) onto U.S. 25 and reconnect with I-75 in Mt. Vernon.

A structural review was completed of the overpass currently under construction due to a vehicle crash that occurred beneath the structure on Jan. 9. The inspection determined three beams require replacing but pose no safety concerns.     

The KY 1505 bridge replacement is part of the ongoing $31 million I-75 widening project between mile points 64.5 to 69.

The date and duration of work may be adjusted for inclement weather or other unforeseeable delays. Motorists can access travel and traffic conditions at http://goky.ky.gov or contribute their own reports at www.waze.com or via the Waze mobile application.
