Paving planned on Purchase Parkway in Graves and Marshall counties
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says a contractor plans milling and paving along a section of the Julian Carroll-Purchase Parkway in Graves and Marshall Counties starting next week.
KYTC spokesman Keith Todd says milling and paving along the parkway is expected to start on Monday, May 2, or as soon as weather permits, at the following locations:
– From near the Kentucky 121 Overpass at mile point 22.5 in Graves County, extending north to mile point 24.6 near the U.S. 45 overpass
– From the 26 mile marker near the Mayfield Creek Overflow Bridge extending north to mile point 38.30 near the Gibson Creek Bridge in Marshall County
As part of this work, Todd says the ramps at Exitt 24 and Exi 25 will be closed for two to three hours to facilitate the paving process. He says the milling and paving is expected to take two to three weeks to complete if the weather allows.
Todd says this is part of general upgrades to the parkway between Calvert City and Mayfield to prepare for extending Interstate 69 in the future.
