ELIZABETHTOWN, KY (2:19pmCT - Tue 12 Jan 2016) - A single vehicle crash with fatality has I-65 blocked near Mile Point 77, just south of Sonora (Exit 81). Investigation and cleanup will take 2-3 hours. Traffic is urged to utilize the WK Parkway (Exit 91) if going through to Bowling Green. Local I65 commuters are urged to use US 31W or US 31E. We will have manual operators on site at the one-lane US 31W bridge over I65 between Sonora and Upton to help with timing to accommodate increased southbound US 31W traffic.
