This LED upgrade is a continuation of an existing project announced at the end of 2020, which also includes replacing thousands of lower-efficiency roadway fixtures across the commonwealth by early 2022. Altogether, KYTC plans to replace more than 18,000 lights with new LEDs (light-emitting diodes), which last longer and require less energy yet provide greater visibility. Also, as a part of this LED upgrade, KYTC crews will be cleaning the tunnel to ensure proper maintenance.

The date and duration of this work may be adjusted if inclement weather or other unforeseen delays occur.  Visit goky.ky.gov for the latest in traffic and travel information in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.  You can also get traffic information for the District 5 counties at facebook.com/KYTCDistrict5 and twitter.com/KYTCDistrict5.
