03/01/13 – Sweet 16® Traffic Advisory-Inbound from West- US60 (Versailles Road)

March 5, 2013 Basketball Blog Updates

Information will be posted here concerning traffic impact from construction on Versailles Road with Boys Sweet 16®

Beginning February of 2013, work will begin on a total overhaul of US60 (Versailles Road) from the Bluegrass Parkway through State Road 4 (New Circle Road).

At present time, it does not appear that the project will impact travel or movement into the Boys Sweet Sixteen as the project is set to have two lanes open at all times. Delays are expected at the intersection of Versailles Road and Man O’War (next to Bluegrass field) as that are normally has several more lanes.

Patrons coming from the west who desire to avoid the congestion and construction have a couple of desirable alternatives.

  1. Exit the Bluegrass Parkway at exit 59 toward Lawrenceburg (onto US 127). Follow US127 to the I-64 East junction, and proceed east to Lexington. Exit at either Exit 115 (Newtown Road) or Exit 113 (North Broadway), and proceed toward Lexington and toward the Lexington Center. This detour would add approximately 15 minutes travel time.
  2. Exit the Bluegrass Parkway at exit Exit 68 (right) and go south approximately 3 miles then turn west of Highway 169, this road will take you to Harrodsburg Road (Highway 68). Turn north at the intersection and follow Harrodsburg Road into downtown. This detour would add approximately 15- 20 minutes travel time.
The primary advice to all patrons is add extra travel time to your plans. For further information about the project, go to http://transportation.ky.gov/District-7/Pages/US60-Rehab.aspx
