LA GRANGE, Ky. (AP) - Rest areas along Interstate 71 in Oldham County are closing Tuesday for about a month while repairs are made.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says the rest areas on both northbound and southbound I-71 will be closed through the first week of February.

Restrooms at the facilities were built in the 1970s. They will be replaced, and some outside structures will be painted and portions of the concrete sidewalks will be repaired.

A $330,750 contract was recently awarded for the work.

The cabinet says bad weather or other unforeseen delays could change the timing of the work. Dial 511 or visit https://511.ky.gov for the latest traffic and travel information in Kentucky.
