Richwood Rd. Interchange Improvements
Transport Dr. at US 25 is CLOSED. The closure is expected to remain in place indefinitely per order of the Boone County Sheriff as a result of multiple vehicles attempting to travel around construction barricades.
The existing intersection of Richwood Rd. and Dixie Hwy. (US 25) is permanently closed.
Traffic on US 25 is using the new pavement between Duffel Ln. and Logistics Blvd. Signage has been put into place to direct drivers through the new traffic pattern, and a new traffic signal is operational at the intersection of Best Pal Dr. and Richwood Rd.
This travel pattern is expected to be in place through project completion, which is expected in late summer 2023.
The intersection of Paddock Rd. and Richwood Rd. (KY 338) has been reopened. Traffic on Richwood Rd. from the Frogtown Connector west to the new roundabout is using the new pavement to allow for improvements on the south side of the road.
This travel pattern is expected to be in place through the end of 2022.
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.
Thursday, July 7 - Saturday, July 9, weather permitting:
Beginning at 10 p.m., Thursday and Friday nights, the on-ramp from Richwood Rd. (KY 338) to I-71/75 southbound will be CLOSED. The ramp will reopen to traffic by 5 a.m., the following morning.
Monday, June 20 – Friday, July 15, weather permitting:
Various lane closures will be put into place on US 25 between Best Pal Dr. and Winning Colors Dr. Travel will be maintained by flaggers, when needed.
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.
