2:28 AFTERNOON UPDATE: Both lanes of I65 now open

BOWLING GREEN —  

The crashes earlier today between Glendale and Cave City on Interstate 65 southbound have been cleared and both lanes are open to traffic. The northbound direction has one lane open to traffic. Due to the length of the back-ups for both directions, it may take a bit for the queues to clear out.

 

In addition, salt trucks were not able to treat those portions of roadway where the back-ups were located, allowing ice to build up on those sections of interstate. Salt trucks from District 3 and 4 are working in tandem to rectify this situation, said Keirsten Jaggers, public information officer for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet's District 3 Office in Bowling Green. 

Motorists should always use extra caution while driving in wintry weather, including allowing plenty of room for snow plows and other heavy equipment.

 

For highway assistance, SAFE Patrol dispatchers can be reached at 877-FOR-KYTC (367-5982).

 

Condition reports on major routes are available by calling 511 or by logging onto the 511 travel and traffic information website, 511.ky.gov.
