Road closures needed for emergency sewer line repair

Story Avenue
January 31, 2021

There is a large depression, or dip in the pavement, in Story Avenue, where the I-64 eastbound exit ramp connects with the roadway. The area is covered with metal plates while inspections continue.

This repair requires the I-64 eastbound ramp to close beginning at 9:30 AM, Monday, February 1. The ramp must close to ensure the safety of the crews who are working at the base of the ramp. One lane of Story Avenue will be open to traffic through the repair site.

Detour signs will post by Monday morning. Eastbound I-64 traffic will detour to Grinstead Drive, make a left onto Grinstead Drive, then a left to enter I-64 westbound back to the westbound exit for Story Avenue.

There is no disruption of the sewer or other utility service in the area. We will have more details on the repair and duration of the closure once inspections are complete.
