NKY Travel Impaired by Pothole Repair, Mudslide

Pothole repair will slow travel in Grant and Boone Counties, and a mudslide continues to cause problems in Owen County.

Starting Tuesday morning, road crews from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet - District 6 will be repairing potholes in Interstate 75 northbound from the Scott-Grant County line to Dry Ridge, and then starting at 1 p.m., will move in the southbound lanes from Dry Ridge and back to the Scott County line.

These rolling roadblocks will close traffic in all three lanes and will be in place for approximately thirty minutes.

Meanwhile, in Boone County, a maintenance crew will be patching potholes on 75 southbound Tuesday morning from Donaldson Road to U.S. 42. The work will close the left two lanes starting at 9 a.m. until about noon.

In Owen County, drivers are still dealing with a mudslide. Road crews will be working to clean it up on Tuesday, which will close Gratz-Worthville Road (KY 355) at the 16 mile marker.

The road will be closed until approximately 3 p.m.

Drivers can use Worthville Road (KY 227) to Dowd Road (KY 325) as a detour.

In Kenton County, a bridge maintenance project will take place on the mainline bridge on I-275 eastbound over I-71/I-75. The left lane will be closed between noon and 2 p.m. Motorists should watch for lane closure, crews, and equipment.
