Overpass that crosses Purchase Parkway to be reduced to one lane

An overpass that crosses the Purchase Parkway in Benton, Kentucky will be reduced to one lane on Monday.

The KY 348 overpass will be down to one lane to allow a contractor to remove the median that runs down the middle of the overpass.

Keith Todd with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says it should take 3 to 4 days to remove the median.

As soon as the median is removed, the lane restriction will be lifted.
