Officials with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet want to inform the public that a there will be several ramp closures at the I-24/ Fort Campbell Boulevard Interchange in Christian County starting next week.
Officials say the ramp closures will be begin Monday, September 30th to allow shoulder curbing, milling, pavement and guardrail work along the ramps with the closures to be phased to allow access from one direction or the other along US 41-A.
Starting September 30th, ramps from US 41-A southbound to I-24 westbound and I-24 eastbound to US 41-A will be closed.
During the week of October 7th, ramps from US 41-A southbound to I-24 eastbound and I-24 westbound to US 41-A will be closed and then during the week of October 14th, ramps from US 41-A northbound to I-24 eastbound and US 41-A northbound to I-24 westbound will be closed to traffic.
Officials say this closure schedule allows an alternate route between US 41-A and I-24 during the ramp work with motorists able to travel to the next intersection or interchange, do a turnaround, and access an open ramp from the opposite direction during the closures.
Officials say work on each ramp is expected to take about 5 days to complete, weather permitting and is part of ongoing rehabilitation work along I-24 from the 86 to 93 mile marker.
