(LEX 18) — UPDATE: The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says to avoid Clays Ferry Bridge along I-75 in Fayette and Madison Counties. Officials say several semi-trucks have jackknifed.

On I-64, officials say to avoid the area near mile marker 103 after an incident with multiple cars westbound. Eastbound is closed to allow room for EMTs.

PREVIOUS STORY:

The Lexington, KY Traffic Management Center says access to I-75 and I-64 is back open. Police are asking people not to travel on the interstates unless necessary.

Earlier in Fayette County, police have closed the on-ramps to I-75 North and Southbound between Exit 115 (Newtown Pike) and Exit 104 (Athens Boonesborough Road) to allow state crews to work.

Motorists currently on I-75 will be allowed to proceed, however, if traffic exits the interstate, motorists will not be allowed back on. This condition will remain until further notice.

There are several crashes between 101 and 104 mile-markers on I-64. Both eastbound and westbound lanes are shut down right now.

The Lexington Police Department says officers are currently working to reopen exit ramps blocked by collisions as quickly as possible. Police ask people to be patient as they continue to work on restoring interstate travel.
