Nightly Lane Closures Scheduled Overnight Starting August 8

Weather permitting, there will be nightly lane closures on westbound I-64 for removal of the paint containment system, as painting of one span of the truss has been completed. Lane closures will be implemented on or after 10 p.m. through 6 a.m. the following morning.

The lane closures will take place as follows:

  • Monday, August 8 at 10 p.m. to Tuesday morning, August 9 at 6 a.m.

Crews will be working above the closed lanes at various times to remove the paint containment system on the truss.  Please be aware of crews working and use caution while driving.

One westbound lane will remain open and all westbound ramps within the project corridor will remain accessible during these lane closures. Delays are expected, and motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes where possible.
