Temporary traffic signals in place at KY 2084

The on and off ramps from US 41 South to KY 351/2nd Street are scheduled to close early next week and remain closed for about six weeks. The ramps are scheduled to close Monday, June 17 and are expected to reopen by late July.

Signed detours will be in place. Drivers traveling southbound on US 41 who want to access KY 351/2nd Street will use the next exit (Exit 13) to take a right on KY 2084 and follow it to KY 351/2nd Street.

Temporary traffic signals will be in place at the bottom of the ramp to KY 2084 and at the KY 351/2nd Street intersection to help facilitate the safe and efficient flow of traffic in the area.

Drivers on KY 351 who want to go south on US 41 will take KY 2084 to KY 425 (left turn onto KY 425) and then take the ramp to US 41.

During the ramp closures, crews will continue rebuilding the KY 351/2nd Street interchange as part of Section 1 of the I-69 Ohio River Crossing. The two roundabouts west of US 41 are expected to open to traffic before the new school year starts in August.

KY 2084 Reopening to Two-Way Traffic
To facilitate movement in the area during the ramp closures, KY 2084 reopened to northbound traffic earlier this month. The KY 2084 ramp currently ends in a T-intersection and drivers can turn left or right on KY 2084. A 3-way stop had been in place. The stop signs are being replaced by temporary traffic signals to help move traffic safely through the area.

Van Wyk Closure
With US 41 traffic shifted to the new pavement, one of the first things that crews will do is demolish the old US 41 southbound bridge over Van Wyk Road. To accommodate the demolition work, Van Wyk Road will be closed under US 41. The closure is expected to begin Monday, June 17 and end by Thursday, June 20.

Slow Down in Construction Zones
As always, drivers are encouraged to slow down and stay alert as they adjust to new traffic patterns.

Actual dates and anticipated work may be adjusted if inclement weather or other unforeseen activities occur.
