The load is scattered across both lanes and has shut down the northbound direction, according to a press release from Keirsten Jaggers, public information officer for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet's Department of Highways, District Three Office in Bowling Green.
Motorists are being detoured off I-65 at Cave City (mile marker 53) and back onto the interstate at Horse Cave (mile marker 58).
