MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP) - Repairs are getting started in eastern Kentucky on Interstate 64, where Transportation Cabinet officials say travel is being reduced to one lane in each direction.

Workers are building a median crossover to divert traffic away from the work zone, which stretches from mile marker 150 to around mile marker 148.

Next week, westbound traffic will be diverted onto the eastbound side, where traffic will travel in two directions until November.

Concrete barriers will separate each direction of traffic while two-way travel is in place, and the speed limit will be reduced to 55 miles per hour with a double-fine zone enforced.

Eastbound and westbound travel will be restricted to 14-foot lanes until November.

The project also includes tree trimming, drainage improvement and new blacktop along six miles in Rowan County.
