Tuesday, 26 November 2013 09:48

***UPDATE***

 

Both northbound lanes are closed for removal of semi. The crash site is actually on the Hart County side of the line. The semi was southbound and crashed into the barrier wall on the northbound side. Cargo includes canned food products. There is a lot of debris to remove. Crews are making efforts to reduce impacts to traffic, considering the heavy volume and weather conditions. Total cleanup will take 4+ hours. At this time, traffic is backed up approximately 6 miles each direction. US31W between Munfordville (Exit 65) and Upton (Exit 76) is very congested.

Motorists are urged to use additional caution.

 

---------------------------------------------------

Interstate 65 Northbound is closed near Mile Point 75 due to a semi crash, just north of the Hart/ Larue County Line.  One southbound lane is blocked, as well.

The scene is estimated to take 4 hours to clear.  Updates will be sent as time estimates to get a lane open are solidified.

Traffic volume on the interstate is heavy.  Northbound motorists traveling through between Bowling Green and Elizabethtown are urged to use the William Natcher Parkway north to the Western Kentucky Parkway east and rejoin I65 in Elizabethtown.

Traffic along the US 31W corridor is also heavy.  Local traffic is urged to use additional caution at intersecting roads and may wish to avoid congestion along US 31W.
