Work will be conducted around Exit 91

A traffic advisory has been issued for southbound Interstate 65 tonight.

Contract crews working for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will close I-65 to reinstall the truss and signs knocked down at the Exit 91 approach in March.

The work is scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. when the right lane will be closed, according to a news release from the cabinet's District 4 office.

From 10 to 10:15 tonight, Kentucky State Police will assist by establishing a rolling roadblock. It will delay all southbound traffic as the truss upright is set on the left shoulder of the highway. A second rolling roadblock, also expected to take about 15 minutes, is scheduled at 11 p.m. while the truss is set over the interstate.

The lane closure should be removed and traffic flow back to normal by midnight or 12:30 a.m., the cabinet said.

Northbound traffic should not be affected.
