Lane closures will be in place first week of April

As crews begin reconstructing the KY 351 interchange as part of Section 1 of the I-69 Ohio River Crossing, lane restrictions are scheduled for the first week of April. KY 351/2nd Street will be reduced to one lane in each direction from in front of North Middle School to the US 41 southbound ramps. The closures will allow crews to install new under-the-road storm drainage, along with completing other work in the area.

The lane closures are expected to be in place by early Monday, April 1 and end on Saturday, April 6. The work and closures have been scheduled to coincide with Spring Break for Henderson County Schools when traffic is lighter in the area. Similar restrictions are expected this summer when school is out to allow crews the room they need to work in the area.

Short-term closures of KY 351 are also expected while the restrictions are in place. Flagging operations will be used to manage the short-term closures.

Drivers are encouraged to slow down, stay alert, and prepare for possible delays. Actual dates and anticipated work may be adjusted if inclement weather or other unforeseen activities occur.

Restrictions will be lifted before the total solar eclipse on Monday, April 8. Both KY 351/Second Street and US 41 will be open to two lanes of traffic in each direction to assist with the anticipated heavy traffic flow.
