KY 80 at Purchase Parkway overpass in Mayfield to close Wednesday
Starting Wednesday, KY 80 will be closed where it crosses the Julian Carroll-Purchase Parkway in Mayfield.
The overpass will be demolished and a new one will be built in its place.
During the demolition of the overpass, the Purchase Parkway will be temporarily detoured via the ramps at the Mayfield-Fancy Farm Exit 22 interchange.
A marked detour for KY 80 traffic will be available via US 45 or KY 121 depending on the direction of travel.
The ramps at the interchange will remain open to provide connectivity on each side of the closed overpass.
Construction on the new overpass is expected to be completed on July 1st. The contractor will face a significant penalty if work extends beyond the deadline.
