The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) advises motorists that Interstate 75 in Rockcastle County will be closed for two nights beginning April 23 to allow for demolition of the old KY 1505 bridge.
I-75 north will be closed to traffic beginning at 9 p.m. EDT on Monday, April 23 and will reopen by 6 a.m. EDT on Tuesday, April 24. I-75 south will be closed from 9 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, April 24 until 6 a.m. EDT on Wednesday, April 25.
Motorists traveling on I-75 north will detour via Exit 62 (Mt. Vernon) onto U.S. 25 and reconnect with I-75.
Motorists traveling on I-75 south will detour via Exit 76 (Berea) onto U.S. 25 and reconnect with I-75.
A new bridge was recently constructed on KY 1505 to replace the current structure as part of the ongoing $31 million I-75 widening project between mile points 64.5 to 69.
The date and duration of work may be adjusted for inclement weather or other unforeseeable delays.
