On I-65 Northbound at mile marker 88 in Hardin County, just outside of Elizabethtown, KYTC said a semi crashed into the barrier wall on Friday afternoon.

As of 2:50 p.m., KYTC said the blockage had been cleared and both northbound lanes are open.

In order to avoid delays, KYTC recommends that drivers choose the right lane at the split where divided lanes begin just north of Sonora.  US 31W between Sonora and Elizabethtown is also moving very slowly northbound, according to KYTC.

KYTC said with a high volume of traffic this afternoon, it will take time for traffic flow to return to normal even after the scene clears.
