Construction causes big backup on KY interstate

Traffic on I-75 was heavily impacted by overnight construction.

The roadwork began at 10:00 pm and has ran through the night.

The project involved repairing and repaving around twelve miles of I-75 in both directions.

The Northbound lane was finished in the night and is running smoothly.

The Southbound lane was down to one lane during rush hour traffic and was backed up as far as exit 110.

The roadwork was scheduled to end at 10:00 am so things should be alright for the evening commute, however, you still might want to call 511 to check the travel conditions.
