WHAT

is the scope of the project?

An approximately six-mile section of I-71/75 will be repaved between the Mt. Zion Rd. (KY 536) interchange and the I-71/75 split in Walton, KY. In addition, an approximately three-mile section of I-75 will be repaved between the I-71/75 split and the Boone/Kenton County line. Pavement work will be completed in both the north and southbound lanes within both sections.

 

Pavement work also will be completed on I-75 under the I-71 bridges at the I-71/75 split to allow more height clearance at this location.

 

Routine maintenance repairs will be made to the bridges that carry I-71/75 traffic over Mt. Zion Rd. (KY 536), Frogtown Rd. (KY 3060), and Richwood Rd. (KY 338).

 

In addition, shoulder and drainage work, guardrail and median wall repairs, erosion control, and other minor maintenance tasks will take place throughout the nine-mile project area.
