KYTC NEWS RELEASE

A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to open two new ramps at the Interstate 69/KY 813 Exit 108 Mortons Gap Interchange in HOPKINS County on Tuesday afternoon, November 15, 2016.

The southbound exit ramp from I-69 to KY 813 and the entry ramp from KY 813 to I-69 northbound are expected to be open to traffic sometime late Tuesday afternoon.

There is still substantial work to be done to complete construction of the new interchange. The project to bring the interchange up to current interstate standards is approximately 75 percent complete.

As traffic is moved to these two new ramps on the north leg of the interchange, motorists are reminded that this continues to be an active work zone. Motorists should use appropriate caution where equipment, flaggers, and construction personnel are along the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow.

Road Builders, LLC, is the prime contractor on this $14,042,963 highway improvement project. The target completion date for the new interchange is July 1, 2017.
