The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says traffic on Interstate 65 continues to be very slow and stopped in spots from near the construction zone at the Barren/Hart County line.
The backup is believed to be a result of motorists attempting to observe construction activities near Cave City.
US 31W is also extremely congested through the towns of Bonnieville, Munfordville, Horse Cave, and Cave City with very long wait times at intersections.
Schools letting out for the day in Bonnieville, Munfordville, and Horse Cave along US 31W will add to congestion.
Motorists are urged to drive with additional caution, as roads are wet, which reduces stopping distances.
Being a heavy travel weekend, congestion is expected to last through the afternoon drive and ease into the evening.
