2:35 AFTERNOON UPDATE: Interstate 65 lanes open, detour being shutdown


All three lanes of Interstate 65 are now open, according to information from the state department of transportation District 3 Twitter feed.

"I-65 UPDATE: All three lanes now open ... near mile marker 44. Detour is being shutdown," the feed says.



Interstate 65 is expected to be fully open by 3 p.m., according to information provided by Jonathan Biven through Twitter.

"Back on scene Barren County Emergency Director Tony Richey advises roadway should be open by 3:00 pm," the state police Post 3 public affairs officer said in his tweet.

Traffic has been detoured from I-65 northbound onto the Cumberland Parkway since early Friday morning.


Interstate 65 northbound is closed near mile marker 44.

A detour has been established and those traveling in the area have an alternate route to take.

Northbound motorists should take exit 43 onto the Louie B. Nunn-Cumberland Parkway, then take exit 15 (the third Glasgow exit) and take a left onto KY 1519 and stay on Veteran’s Outer Loop, then take a right onto KY 90 (Happy Valley Road). Motorists will follow KY 90 until it connects with I-65 in Cave City.


Also, motorists can exit the interstate at Smiths Grove at exit 38, take a left onto KY 101 and follow to U.S 31W. Motorists can get back on I-65 in Park City.

Lane closures are expected to continue for at least two more hours, according to state transportation department district 3 on Twitter.
