Interstate 64 construction in Shelby County August 24-27
Louisville, KY (August 23, 2018) – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) advises motorists of construction work this weekend as part of the Interstate 64 resurfacing project. Paving of the right lane and shoulder on I-64 West will take place this weekend between the weigh station and the KY 55 interchange (Exit 32), mile markers 32.2 to 38.5. Work is scheduled from 7 p.m. on Friday, August 24 until 6 a.m. on Monday, August 27.
Crews plan to close entrance and exit ramps on I-64 West at KY 53 (Exit 35) on Saturday, August 25 while paving of the driving lanes at these ramps is taking place. They plan to close the exit ramp from I-64 West to KY 53 between 7 a.m. and noon. The entrance ramp from KY 53 to I-64 West will be closed from noon until 7 p.m. These times could change depending upon construction progress.
Motorists on I-64 West that want to access KY 53 should follow the signed detour by continuing to KY 55 (Exit 32), turning left at the end of the ramp then taking I-64 East back to Exit 35.
Motorists on KY 53 that need to access I-64 West should take the ramp to I-64 East, exit at KY 395 (Exit 43) and follow signs for I-64 West.
Milling and resurfacing of the exit and entrance ramps on I-64 West at KY 53 (Exit 35) is currently scheduled for the weekend of September 7-9.
Crews will also be working on I-64 East this weekend performing concrete deck overlays at the bridges over Clear Creek and Guist Creek. The left lane will be closed between the KY 55 interchange (Exit 32) and the weigh station.
This work is part of a construction project for pavement repairs on a six-mile section of I-64 in Shelby County. This project involves resurfacing of the roadway and concrete overlays at the bridges over Clear Creek and Guist Creek. The existing guardrail will also be replaced.
Work zone signs are in place with lights that flash when workers are present. The speed limit in the work zone is reduced to 55 MPH when these signs are activated.

Emergency road aid funds awarded for slide repairs in Shelby County
FRANKFORT, Ky. (July 5, 2018) – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet recently awarded County Road Aid emergency funds for two slide repairs in Shelby County. These funds will be used for repairs on Bardstown Trail (CR 1122) and Cat Walk Road (CR 1035). KYTC is providing $68,000 for repairs on Bardstown Trail and $148,000 for repairs on Cat Walk Road.
“The Bevin administration is committed to the Cabinet’s mission of providing a safe, reliable transportation network for all Kentuckians,” said Transportation Secretary Greg Thomas.  “These emergency funds will help local governments repair and restore damaged infrastructure throughout their communities.”
The KYTC District 5 Office will be responsible for administering the work. Slide repairs will be performed by Geostabilization International LLC. To help reduce costs, KYTC maintenance staff and the Shelby County Road Department will work together on excavation and hauling of materials.
Repairs are scheduled to begin Wednesday, July 11 at the slide on Cat Walk Road located 0.29 miles east of KY 1922 (Cedarmore Road). The work will take approximately two weeks to complete. Crews will then move to Bardstown Trail to repair the slide near the intersection with Buzzard Roost Road.

Once the slide repairs are complete, Shelby County Fiscal Court will be responsible for roadway reconstruction at both locations which includes asphalt paving and guardrail installation.
The date and duration of this work may be adjusted if inclement weather or other unforeseen delays occur.
