Overnight closures the next two weeks on US 41 and KY 351
Crews completed needed prep work this week on US 41 at KY 351, but the demolition work anticipated for this week will begin next week. Overnight lane closures are expected on US 41 at KY 351.
Short-term overnight stoppages are expected on KY 351 at the same location. Crews are beginning phased demolition work as a new overpass is constructed as part of Section 1 of the I-69 Ohio River Crossing.
The nightly closure for demolition work is now expected to begin Monday, June 12. One lane of US 41 northbound will be closed near KY 351. Closures are expected to start around 7 p.m. and end by 6 a.m. each day. The work is expected to take about two weeks to complete. Work will shift to the southbound side of the overpass in the coming weeks.
Short-term temporary closures are expected overnight on KY 351, as needed, to accommodate the demolition work happening overhead on the US 41 overpass. The closures are expected to last about 15 minutes, and flaggers will be in place. Expect the short-term stoppages between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m.
With the demolition, there will be associated noise during the work. We ask for patience from people in the immediate area. The work is happening at night to minimize impacts to motorists and to get the work done as quickly and as safely as possible.
Van Wyk Closure Expected Next Week
Demolition work is also expected to begin next week at US 41 and Van Wyk Road. Van Wyk is expected to be closed between Kimsey Lane and the US 41 overpass. It will close on or around Monday, June 12, and the full closure is expected to last up to a week.
KY 425 Bridge Work is Underway
Crews started work this week to rehabilitate the KY 425 overpass bridge. To accommodate the work, the 12-foot travel lanes are reduced to 10-foot lanes with no shoulders. No loads over 9-foot are allowed on the bridge with signage posted. The restrictions are expected to be in place through early August.
Actual dates and anticipated work may be adjusted if inclement weather or other unforeseen activities occur.
