This Friday, June 7 at 9 p.m. the ramp from US 27 to I-471 NB will be closed so road officials can remove the bad pavement and put down new. The ramp will reopen on Monday, June 10 at 6 a.m.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has been replacing aging concrete with new asphalt at the U.S. 27 and Interstate 471 interchange, which has required lane closures, weekend ramp closures and a closure on Moock Road at U.S. 27, according to KYTC.
"We are excited to address the deteriorated pavement at the U.S. 27 and I-471 interchange," said Bob Yeager, chief district engineer for KYTC District 6. "This will improve the commute for the residents and motorists who live and travel within this area."
The $1.8 million project, awarded to The Harper Company, is expected to be complete in October, 2019.
