Richwood Rd. Interchange Improvements 




The right lane of I-71/75 northbound is closed from approximately one-half mile south of the Richwood Rd. (KY 338) exit to the bridge over Frogtown Rd. (The length of the closure is approximately one mile.) This closure is expected to remain in place through the end of the year while improvement work continues in the northbound ramp area. 


Crews are working along Richwood Rd. (KY 338) between Triple Crown Blvd./Grand National Blvd. and Dixie Hwy. (US 25), and along the US 25 corridor. Occasional lane closures may occur, but traffic will be maintained with flaggers when needed. Please be aware of construction vehicles entering and exiting the project area.   


Crews also are continuing work on Best Pal Dr., Winning Colors Dr., Triple Crown Blvd., and Paddock Dr. weekdays between 7 a.m. - 5 p.m. During this time, temporary road closures may be needed, and short-term detours will be put into place. 



  • The Old Lexington Pike railroad crossing just south of Richwood Rd. is closed. 


All traffic will use Chambers Rd. to access US 25 and I-71/75. Temporary traffic signals have been installed at the intersection of Chambers Rd. and US 25 to help improve traffic flow. 

This traffic pattern is expected to be in place throughout the duration of our construction work, which is scheduled to continue through 2022, but options to reduce the length of this closure are being evaluated. ​​

  • The railroad crossing at Richwood Rd. and US 25 is permanently closed. ​


During construction, traffic will cross the railroad tracks at the intersection of Shorland Dr./Winning Colors Dr., where new traffic signals are operational and timed to help ease congestion and support traffic flow through the intersection.

This closure is needed so that temporary railroad tracks can be built in the project area to allow for major intersection improvements at Richwood Rd. and US 25.  


The construction of a new roundabout at Grand National Blvd. and Richwood Rd. (KY 338) will require a short-term closure on a portion of Grand National Blvd. for 28 days, weather permitting. 


Thursday, Sept. 9 - Wednesday, Oct. 6, weather permitting:


Grand National Blvd. is CLOSED at Richwood Rd. (KY 338). The closure extends approximately 600 feet south. 


A detour route using Sutherland Dr., Savannah Dr., Wooded Knoll Dr., and Grand National Blvd. has been put into place and is marked with signage. On-street parking is limited along the detour route. 


This travel pattern is expected to be in place through Wednesday, Oct. 6, weather permitting.
