Northbound detours remain in place this morning following Monday’s train derailment adjacent to US 31W (Dixie Highway) just north of West Point. We will advise when the detour is removed. The southbound detour also remains in effect.Northbound motorists planning to travel US 31W to get into Jefferson County / Louisville area should use KY 313 southbound (Joe Prather Highway) 9.5 miles to merge onto Interstate 65 north and then proceed into Jefferson County until US 31W reopens to traffic. US 31W is restricted to local traffic north of the US 60 intersection.
Southbound US 31W should detour via Interstate 265 east to Interstate 65 south.
Motorists along the route will see mobile message boards to assist with the detour information.
