Motorists in Henderson, get ready for some lane closures Tuesday on the Highway 60 cloverleaf.

This project could cause some headaches for drivers beginning at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday morning. The good news is crews are starting early to try to get all of the work done in one day.

Here's what you need to know- the ramps to the Highway 60 cloverleaf to US 41-North will be shut down. That will allow road crews to safely perform maintenance on the ditches in that area.

There's also a large wash out on US 41-North near the Ramada Inn that needs to be fixed so it doesn't get worse. While crews are working on that, lanes will be down to one lane on 41. 

"It's washing out toward the road now. We want to make sure we don't have further problems or bigger problems in the future," Keith Todd, with the Kentucky Transportation Department, said. "The best thing is to go ahead and fix it now while it's still manageable. This is not something that we can go ahead and just leave there."

Todd says crews hope to get all of that work done in one day.  He says it's been eight or nine years since that work has been done.
