Rest areas in Oldham County closed due to plumbing repair | News

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — Oldham County rest areas off Interstate 71 were closed Monday night for plumbing repairs until further notice.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) said the rest areas near mile point 13 on I-71 are closed in both directions.

Previously, the closures lasted only a few days.

Last year, a KYTC spokesperson told WDRB that the plumbing is old and visitors to the rest rooms keep flushing things they should, which clog the pump and cause the entire system to back up.
