Interstate 65 ramp closure scheduled for July 22 | News
LOUISVILLE, KY - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) announces temporary closure of the exit ramp from southbound Interstate 65 to St. Catherine Street (Exit 135). This ramp closure is necessary for the removal and replacement of four pier caps on the I-65 bridge over Brook Street and Kentucky Street.
Closure of the southbound I-65 exit ramp to St. Catherine Street is scheduled to begin at 12:01 a.m. on Monday, July 22 and will continue for 60 days. The closure was originally announced to begin on July 8, but had to be postponed due to recent weather delays.
A signed detour will be in place via I-65 South to Arthur Street. From there motorists will be directed to East Brandeis Avenue and South Brook Street where they can access St. Catherine Street.
KYTC awarded a contract earlier this spring for repairs to the substructure of the I-65 bridge over Brook Street and Kentucky Street. Construction began the week of June 10 with the initial traffic impacts affecting the sidewalks and on street parking at Brook Street and Kentucky Street underneath I-65.
Intech Contracting LLC was awarded the contract for this project in the amount of $982,360. The contract completion date is November 15, 2013.
