DAWSON SPRINGS, Ky. (AP) — Southbound travelers on Interstate 69 in western Kentucky may need to change their route slightly while work is being done on ramps at Dawson Springs.
The Transportation Cabinet says a contractor will close the southbound exit and entry ramps at the Kentucky 109 interchange starting Monday. That's Exit 92.
The ramps are being closed for about a week while connections for the new I-69/Kentucky 109 interchange configuration are built.
The cabinet says while the ramps are closed, traffic from the Dawson Springs area will have to detour west on U.S. 62 to Princeton to reach I-69 southbound. Meanwhile, southbound traffic traveling to Dawson Springs will need to take U.S. 62 west from Nortonville.
