On Wednesday, Kentucky Transportation Cabinet officials say, two new lanes will open on KY 55 around the intersection with Interstate 64.

“Contract crews have recently completed construction of additional lanes on Kentucky 55 including paving of shoulders and installation of guardrail,” said Andrea Clifford, public information officer for the cabinet.

Although lane closures will be necessary in the morning, by Wednesday afternoon the intersection, which has been under construction for more than a  year, will have two lanes in each direction and turning lanes at the ramps for both east and west bound entrance to I-64, Clifford said.
