Construction of new overpass will require brief detours

For the second time in two weeks, a portion of the U.S. 31W Bypass will be closed briefly.

The section between St. John Road and North Dixie Avenue will close at 7:30 tonight.

The Transportation Cabinet notice said the closure is necessary to allow for steel structures to be set overhead for the interchange overpass. The work is part of the Ky. 361 connector that will provide an alternate route between Elizabethtown and Radcliff.

The work is scheduled to be completed and the bypass reopened by 6 a.m. Thursday.

Reduced speeds and lane shifts continue on that end of the bypass as the northbound lanes are being rebuilt.

Message boards will alert motorists to the closure and the temporary detour.
