Industrial Parkway closures set for Tuesday at Calvert City

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet said P&L Railroad plans to close Industrial Parkway for emergency repairs on Tuesday.

KYTC spokesman Keith Todd said the repairs will be made at mile point 7.709 in Calvert City. A cracked rail within the crossing along the eastern leg Industrial Parkway between Gilbertsville Highway and East 5th Avenue has to be replaced.

The rail crossing will be closed starting at 8 a.m. Tuesday. It is expected to reopen to traffic at around 4 p.m. the same day. KYTC personnel will be working with P&L Railroad personnel on the repairs.

Meanwhile, a P&L contractor will have the western leg of Industrial Parkway closed for rail crossing work that began Monday at mile point 2.801. That closure point is along Industrial Parkway near the Shar-Cal Road intersection.

Todd said the rail crossing work will limit access into and out of Calvert City. It will leave Main Street and Gilbertsville Highway as the main routes open for travel to and from the Calvert City Industrial Area. He said drivers who regularly travel Industrial Parkway at Calvert City should make alternate travel plans for Tuesday. 

Also, a previously scheduled closure along the west leg of Kentucky 1523 at mile point 1.887 scheduled to start Wednesday will continue until late Friday.
