Ramp from KY 80 to northbound lanes of Purchase Parkway in Mayfield blocked by wreck

The northbound ramp from Kentucky 80 to the northbound lanes of the Purchase Parkway at Mayfield is blocked after a truck lost a load of construction materials in the road, according to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. 

KYTC spokesman Keith Todd says the truck was bringing materials to the construction zone there, where KY 80 is closed for construction of a new overpass. 

The truck lost a load of precast concrete drainage pipe ends in the road.

Todd says traffic on KY 80 trying to access the northbound lanes of the Purchase Parkway at Exit 22 will have to seek an alternate route. Todd says drivers can us the Kentucky 121 exit as a self-detour for this ramp.
