Southbound I-75 lanes blocked in Whitley County, Ky. due to rock slide

WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. (WATE) – Parts of Interstate 75 are blocked in Whitley County, Kentucky Wednesday afternoon because of a rock slide.

Crews say the right lane is closed as the roadway is reduced to one way. Expect delays for the next half day.

Southbound drivers can detour around the slide by taking exit 11 (Williamsburg) and turn on Highway 92 east for a tenth of a mile and then turn right on U.S. 25W. Remain on U.S. 25W until the Jellico exit.

Northbound traffic is not affected.
