FRANKLIN, Ky. (WSMV) - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will create lane closures on Interstate 65 North in Simpson County on Sunday night for a construction project.

Crews will be setting up traffic control and I-65 north will be down to two lanes from the Kentucky-Tennessee line to just north of exit 6.

The KTC said this is a long-term lane closure while the project is ongoing and will be in pace 24 hours a day. Motorists should use caution and obey the 55 mph speed limit throughout the construction zone.

In addition to the resurfacing, construction crews will also address drains, pipes, slopes, erosion control and other areas related to drainage. Additional lane closures will be added as the project progresses.
