Bourbon, Madison county projects will disrupt travel on U.S. 68, I-75

Road work will affect traffic in two Central Kentucky counties in the next few days, according to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.

Cabinet officials said traffic will be shifted to a newly constructed six-mile stretch of U.S. 68 in Bourbon County starting about 3 p.m. Tuesday.

Travel is being diverted between milepoints 2.3 and 8.3, transportation officials said.

Motorists should use extra caution in the area because stopping points on side roads and driveways will be changing, the cabinet said.

Meanwhile, the transportation cabinet said exit ramp 95 on Interstate 75 in Madison County will be temporarily closed for rehabilitation work starting at 7 p.m. Friday.

The ramp is expected to reopen at 7 p.m. Sunday, according to a news release from the cabinet.

Northbound motorists can taken exit 90 to U.S. 25 as an alternative, and southbound traffic can use exit ramp 97 to U.S. 25, state officials said.
