Delays expected on I-75 in Whitley County

WHITLEY COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says to be expecting delays in the next coming weeks on I-75, due to median cable barriers being installed.

We're told the safety feature is intended to decrease the chances of crossover accidents.

Starting July 1st, the left lane on both northbound and southbound directions will be closed from 6 p.m. to 10 a.m. The project is expected to end by September 3rd.

The speed limit from the Kentucky-Tennessee line will be set at 55 mph.

Road condition reports for District 11 routes are available by calling 511 or by visiting the 511 travel and traffic information web site at
