Lane closures begin Tuesday on I-65 SB near Memphis in Clark County

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Lane closures are expected to be in place through Tuesday, Jan. 28 to Wednesday, Jan. 29. on Interstate 65 southbound at Lodge Creek in Clark County for shoulder and bridge approach repairs.

A temporary left lane closure of I-65 SB will begin Tuesday morning between 8 and 9 a.m. near MM 17.5, north of Memphis. Crews will complete shoulder work in preparation for bridge approach repairs and additional lane closures the following week. 

The closure is expected to be removed Wednesday afternoon (Jan. 29).

After shoulder repairs are finished, bridge approach repairs are scheduled to begin the following Feb. 3 and will require a right lane closure of I-65 SB  through early Feb. 7. Crews will remove and replace the existing bridge approaches and complete pavement repairs during the closure.

Drivers are encouraged to seek an alternate route or allow extra time when traveling through the area. All work is weather dependent.
