LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Construction work on Interstate 65 south of Louisville has been causing weekend lane closures, but the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says that will be suspended this weekend to help motorists traveling to and from Kentucky Derby events.

The right lane is currently closed in each direction on I-65 between the Bullitt-Hardin county line and Lebanon Junction Road, a distance of about 2 1/2 miles. The cabinet says the lanes will remain closed to allow concrete poured this week to cure and strengthen.

Two lanes of traffic will remain open in each direction this weekend through the work zone. The stretch of highway has been reduced to one lane in each direction on weekends but will be left with two lanes each way this weekend.

The speed limit in the work zone is 55 mph. Double fines are being enforced.
