Ongoing work on the new Ky. 361 interchange and rehabilitation of the U.S. 31W Bypass will involve several changes beginning Monday for motorists.

All traffic will be switched to the northbound lanes from Ky. 1357 to U.S. 31W as crews begin work on resurfacing the southbound lanes. Southbound U.S. 31W traffic entering the bypass will not be able to use the existing merge ramp. In order to enter the bypass southbound, motorists will be subject to the traffic signal at the U.S. 31W and the U.S. 31W Bypass intersection.

Additional signage has been installed to help familiarize drivers with the changes, which will remain in effect until crews finish southbound lane resurfacing. Traffic will be shifted to the opposite lanes once southbound work is complete and crews will begin work on northbound resurfacing.

Delays are possible during peak traffic hours. Motorists should reduce speed and minimize distractions when driving through work zones.
