HORSE CAVE, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky transportation officials say the northbound lanes of Interstate 65 are closed at the 56 mile marker in Hart County.

A statement from the Department of Highways says the lanes were closed Monday morning after a semi-truck carrying cargo including batteries overturned. Spokesman Chris Jessie says in a statement the closure is expected to last through early afternoon as the cargo is unloaded and the vehicle removed.

A detour has been set up that requires motorists to get off the interstate at the Cave City exit and re-enter at the Horse Cave exit.

The statement says southbound traffic has not been affected.
