-A A +A

Construction of a new overpass requires the U.S. 31W Bypass to be closed for 12 hours.

The Transportation Cabinet said the road will be closed in both directions from 6 p.m. Tuesday to 6 a.m. Wednesday at the new Ky. 361 overpass as a portion of the bridge structure is set overhead. Traffic will not be allowed to enter the bypass from North Dixie Avenue and northbound traffic will be blocked at St. John Road.

Message boards will alert drivers to the closure. Reduced speed limits already are in effect.
