North and southbound I-65 closed Thursday morning just north of Sonora

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has issued a traffic advisory for I-65 at mile marker 83, just north of Sonora, at the Nolin River Bridge.

On Thursday morning, the right lane of north and southbound I-65 will be closed beginning at 6:30 CST, as construction crews work on bridge approaches.  According to cabinet spokesman Chris Jessie, the work should take about two hours.

Jessie says for northbound motorists, the closure is located within a divided-lane section and will block access to Exits 86 (Glendale) and 91 (Elizabethtown).  Motorists needing to use those two exits should instead take Exit 81 (Sonora) and then travel north on Hwy 31-W.
