Traffic expected to shift on US 41 in early June

KY 351 Lane Closures

Lane closures are expected to begin Wednesday, May 31 on KY 351 near the US 41 overpass. One lane will be closed in each direction.

Lanes will only be reduced under and near the overpass to accommodate demolition work and to begin building the overpass for the new US 41 alignment. The lane closures will be in place for the summer with all lanes expected to reopen to traffic by the time school resumes in early August.

US 41 Traffic Shift

By early June, traffic is expected to shift to the new crossovers being built on US 41 between the 2nd Street/KY 351 and US 60 interchanges. Northbound traffic will be shifting west to use the southbound roadbed. The shift is tentatively scheduled for early Saturday, June 3. Short-term rolling closures are expected that morning to finalize the traffic shift.

Once traffic shifts, two lanes will be open in each direction, but the lanes and shoulders will be narrower.

This is a long-term traffic change to accommodate the construction of the future lanes of mainline I-69. It’s expected to be in place through late 2024.

Motorists are encouraged to slow down and pay attention to signage in the area. It’s also important for drivers to observe the lower speed limit posted in the construction zone.

The actual starting date of the lane closures and the traffic shift may be adjusted if inclement weather or other unforeseen activities occur.
