Mt. Zion Rd. Interchange Improvements
Substantial work on this project has been completed. Please be aware that crews may still be completing various final tasks. Please drive safely.
The new travel pattern at the I-71/75 & Mt. Zion Rd. (KY 536) interchange is open.
For more information on how to navigate a Double Crossover Diamond (also referred to as a Diverging Diamond), please visit our Street Talk page.
In a double crossover diamond interchange, or DCD, traffic through an interchange follows clearly-defined curbs, signs, pavement markings and state-of-the-art signals to move briefly over to the left side of the road. This eliminates the need for drivers to turn left in front of oncoming traffic. Drivers who need to continue through the interchange then cross back over to the right side of the road, leading to the “double crossover” name.
As progress continues on the construction of the KY 536/Mt. Zion corridor, new traffic patterns and means of access are in place. Raised median islands have been installed to allow for a more efficient and safe flow of traffic throughout the corridor. Please note that how motorists access certain properties and businesses may have changed. Please be sure to plan your trip accordingly.
