Motorists should watch for lane closures on KY 32 at the I-64 overpasses in Rowan County next week as part of a highway improvement project.

Beginning, Tuesday or Wednesday, March 7 or 8, depending on weather, crews will remove old, loose concrete on the interstate overpass bridge piers alongside KY 32 at Morehead to safeguard passing traffic and prepare the piers for future concrete patching. There are no structural issues with either of the interstate overpasses or the support piers.

The work will require daily lane closures on KY 32. To alleviate traffic impacts at the busy intersection, work and lane closures will take place between 9 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. only. Work is expected to take a week, or longer.

As KY 32 carries an average 30,000 vehicles per day through that area, motorists should expect delays during the 9-2:30 work hours and adjust travel plans accordingly. No traffic impacts on I-64 are expected.
