There will be a marked detour via KY 56 and KY 1554 during this ramp closure.
After the 24 hour closure from 10:00 p.m., Wednesday to 10:00 p.m., Thursday, the westbound US 60 on-ramp will open to allow access to the Audubon. However, the eastbound US 60 on-ramp will remain closed for 9 days so that the contractor can finish repairs on the ramp.
