  • Traffic snarled by schools

    An accident on Interstate 65 has diverted traffic - lots of it - through Hodgenville via Lincoln Parkway and U.S. 31-E, just as schools are letting out.

    Traffic is backed up to South Fork Church on U.S. 31-E due to a tractor-trailer crash.
    Law enforcement urges drivers to use caution in the area.

  • Traffic detoured on I-65

    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.
