Northbound Interstate 65 remains closed at Mile Point 56 in Hart County.  A hazardous materials crew is removing cargo from the semi which crashed around 7am (central).  Closure is expected to last another 4 hours as cleanup continues.

Northbound traffic is being routed off at Cave City (Exit 53) onto KY 90 east, to US 31W north, to KY 70 east, to US 31E north, to KY 61 (Lincoln Parkway) north and rejoin I65 in Elizabethtown (Exit 91).

Currently, I65 is backed up from the detour closure at Exit 53 to approximately mile point 47.6, just south of Park City.

Traffic along the detour route is extremely heavy in the vicinity of Park City (Exit 48) and Cave City.  The US 31W section between Park City and Cave City is moving slowly.  US 31W traffic through Horse Cave and Munfordville is also heavy.   Local residents in these areas may wish to utilize alternate routes to avoid US 31W intersections.

For motorists traveling through to Elizabethtown, motorists may also wish to exit I65 in Bowling Green via the William Natcher Parkway north to Western Kentucky Parkway east and rejoin I65 in Elizabethtown.  Those needing to access areas to the east side of I65 may wish to utilize the Louie Nunn/Cumberland Parkway east to Glasgow and access 31E.
