I-64 East To Remain Closed Overnight

It’s expected to reopen by 5 a.m.

April 24, 2015 – I-64 East will remain closed during the overnight hours. The closure should allow crews to complete demolition work in the area.

I-64 East is closed just before Story Avenue. The ramp from I-65 North/I-65 South to I-64 East is also closed. The ramp was already scheduled to be closed during the overnight hours for work related to the Downtown Crossing. Keeping traffic off of I-64 East for the remainder of the night should allow crews to complete demolition of the old overpass.

Signed detours are in place. Drivers can use I-264 (Watterson Expressway) and I-71 North to I-264 as alternate routes.

The interstate and ramp are expected to reopen by 5 a.m.

I-64 East Remains Closed

Drivers need to prepare for heavy traffic during afternoon drive 

April 24, 2015 – Despite work throughout the morning and afternoon hours, I-64 East is not expected to reopen to traffic in time for afternoon drive. Drivers leaving Downtown Louisville need to prepare for very heavy traffic. 

I-64 East is closed just before Story Avenue. The ramp from I-65 North/I-65 South to I-64 East is also closed. Crews hope to complete work tonight and reopen the interstate.

Signed detours are in place. Drivers can use I-264 (Watterson Expressway) and I-71 North to I-264 as alternate routes. They can also use I-65 South to access the Watterson Expressway. Surface streets can be used to access I-64 East past the point of the closure.

The closures were put into place late this morning to complete necessary construction work. Demolition work in the area had been halted during the overnight hours and engineers were on site this morning to take a closer look at a beam on the overpass.

Safety is always the top priority for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet and Walsh Construction and it was determined the work should receive immediate attention.

On-site analysis has been completed, the beam is secure and additional demolition work is underway.

When the demolition is complete and inspectors have completed their examination of the work, the interstate and ramp will reopen to traffic.
