LOUISVILLE- The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) District 5 Office advises motorists that the exit ramp from southbound Interstate 65 to KY 245 (Exit 112) at Clermont will be closed this weekend for concrete pavement repairs.  This ramp is scheduled for closure from 9:00 p.m. on Friday, August 22 until 5:00 a.m. on Monday, August 25.


Motorists should follow the signed detour by exiting southbound I-65 at Exit 116 in Shepherdsville.  The detour will then direct motorists to westbound KY 480, southbound KY 61 and back to KY 245.
