I-64 Ramp from Story Avenue to be closed temporarily
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) will close temporarily the entrance ramp from Story Avenue to westbound Interstate 64, beginning Monday, Jan. 9, in an effort to reduce traffic crashes. After the closure of the Sherman Minton Bridge, the exit ramp from westbound I-64 to I-65 was closed to improve traffic flow where these two routes merge with Interstate 71. As a result, the free-flow traffic condition from Story Avenue to I-64 was changed to a short merge condition. To help with traffic control, KYTC installed first a yield sign and subsequently a stop sign at the top of the ramp.
