Heavy delays expected in Franklin County on I-64

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says motorists should expect heavy traffic delays on Interstate 64 in Franklin County where engineers are inspecting bridges over the Kentucky River.

Equipment problems and the need to have power shut down on some nearby electrical lines have delayed the work, and the inspection on the eastbound bridge will continue through Wednesday. The right lane of eastbound traffic will be closed from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. EDT weekdays to allow for the work.

Inspection of the westbound bridge is scheduled to start on Thursday and continue through Oct. 25. The right lane will be closed in that direction from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays for the inspection.

Actual starting dates and duration may change in case of weather interruptions or other delays.
