RE: Revive the Drive – NKY
The arrival of spring brings initiation of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s “Revive the Drive-NKY” work to complete the I-471 southbound pavement replacement project. Please exercise caution when driving to and from campus and refrain from texting at all times. Note that reduced speeds of 55 mph will be posted in construction zones and will be enforced.
Work to replace the pavement on I-471S will begin this week:
Lane closures will occur in the right lane on I-275W between the I-471 interchange and 3-Mile Road until further notice. These closures are due to the work being performed on the I-471 project. Motorists should use caution in this area and watch for construction vehicles entering and leaving the roadway from the shoulder.
