Mt. Zion Rd. Interchange Improvements
Monday, September 25 – Saturday, September 30, weather permitting:
As work continues on this project, there will be flagging traffic as needed and intermittent, short-term single-lane closures throughout the Mt. Zion Rd. project area. Please drive with caution.
Please be aware of occasional daily lane closures throughout the project area. Traffic will be maintained with flaggers when needed. This is an active work zone with construction vehicles entering and exiting the project area.
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.
Crews are closely monitoring the new traffic pattern and are making adjustments to traffic signal timing to ensure traffic is moving efficiently through the new interchange.
Even though the new travel pattern will be in place, this will still be a very active construction area with crews continuing to work on ongoing improvements. Please be mindful of crews working in the project area through the remainder of the year.
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.
