8:24 MORNING UPDATE: Traffic delays expected on I65 in Hart Co. Tuesday, Wednesday


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 7 a.m. to approximately 6:30 p.m. both days.

While congestion and delays are expected on the interstate, motorists may find using U.S. 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 U.S. 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.  An advisory will be issued late this week to provide additional details regarding northbound lane closures.
