LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) – Drivers should look out for lane closures on New Circle Road this week while bridge demolition is expected to take place.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet announced that traffic will be impacted on New Circle Road at Newtown Pike as a part of the New Circle Road widening project.

Reportedly a left lane will be closed from 7:00p.m. Tuesday until 6:00a.m. on Wednesday.

Then starting at 9:00p.m. on Tuesday the Inner Loop will be completely shut down until 6:00a.m. on Wednesday.

KYTC reports that traffic will be re-routed over the ramp and drivers can still travel across or turn onto inbound Newtown Pike, however no traffic will be routed outbound.

They are urging drivers on I-64 or I-75 to use the Broadway exit instead.
