I-71/75 Pavement Rehab (2022)
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.
