CONGESTION EXPECTED ON I-65 WHILE BRIDGE WORK IS DONE NEAR MUNFORDVILLE PDF Print
Tuesday, 30 July 2013 06:30

Motorists traveling South on Interstate 65 in Hart County should be prepared for

delays Tuesday and Wednesday.  Contract crews will be working on the bridge over

Green River near Mile Point 62, just south of Munfordville (Exit 65).  This work

will require reducing the interstate to one lane on approach to the bridge from 7am

to approximately 6:30pm both days.

 

While congestion and delays are expected on the interstate, motorists may find using

US 31W as an alternate route just as time consuming.  Traffic overflow from the

interstate and local traffic through the city of Munfordville (south to Horse Cave)

are expected to create lengthy delays during the interstate lane closure.  With this

in mind, anyone traveling south from Elizabethtown through to Bowling Green (or

beyond) should consider using Western Kentucky Parkway to Natcher Parkway and rejoin

Interstate 65 on the south side of Bowling Green.   Commercial traffic is strongly

urged to consider this route.

 

Local motorists along US 31W from Bonnieville through Munfordville to Horse Cave

should be aware of the increased traffic volume, use additional caution and may wish

to consider using other local roads to avoid congestion, especially mid-day through

the afternoon peak commute.

 

Work will shift to the northbound bridge beginning Sunday (August 4th).  An advisory

will be issued late this week to provide additional details regarding northbound

lane closures.
