Northbound Interstate 65 is closed at mile point 56 in Hart County. A semi crash occurred earlier today, initially reducing the interstate to one lane.
The vehicle’s cargo includes used batteries.
Due to safety concerns, northbound traffic is now being detoured off I-65 at Cave City (Exit 53), onto KY 70 east, to US 31W north, to KY 218 west and rejoin the interstate at Horse Cave (Exit 58).
Closure is expected to last 4-5 hours as the cargo is unloaded and the semi removed. Southbound traffic is not affected at this time.
