Traffic Plan Seeks to Reduce Tie-ups

ky trans dial511 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (3/19/13) – Negotiating a handful of Lexington road construction projects may be as challenging to fans attending the second and third rounds of the NCAA basketball tournament, as a full-court press to a point guard.
 
While one-lane traffic has occurred recently due to work on KY 922 (Newtown Pike) and U.S. 60 (Versailles Road), the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet anticipates a two-lane traffic flow on both routes before the first tip-off Thursday afternoon.
 
The Transportation Cabinet suggests the following routes:
 
• Traffic from the north, east and west via Interstate 75 and Interstate 64 should use exit 113, Broadway to Rupp Arena.
• Traffic from the south via I-75 should use exit 104, Richmond Road.
 
Tournament goers are also advised to allow extra time due to Rupp Arena’s location in downtown Lexington.
