About this Project

This heavy pavement replacement takes place on a three-mile section of I-275 in both directions between Dixie Highway (US 25) and Turfway Road (KY-717), just east of the Mineola Pike exit. 

Due to the size of the project, construction will take place in two phases:

Phase 1: I-275 Eastbound will be paved by the end of 2019, and will consist of new pavement as well as work on the ramps of:

  • I-275 eastbound to I-75 northbound/southbound
  • I-275 eastbound exit to Dixie Hwy.
  • I-75 northbound ramp to I-275 eastbound


Increased traffic on I-275 since 2011

Phase 2, which invoves pavement on the westbound part of I-275, is slated to begin in 2020. Construction is expected to begin in late spring/early summer and will continue through 2020.  Work will occur on the ramps of:

  • I-275 westbound ramp to I-75 southbound
  • I-275 westbound entrance from Dixie Hwy.
  • I-75 southbound ramp to I-275 westbound

Lane restrictions in the area have started. These improvements will make the heavily-traveled section of I-275 a much smoother and safer ride for anyone who drives on the section of the interstate. To learn more about the I-275 Kentucky Pavement Repair project, click here to visit the project’s website.
