Maximum load with restriction in place in Mayfield Purchase Parkway work zone
A 13-foot maximum load width restriction is in place starting Friday for southbound traffic at the Julian Carroll-Purchase Parkway/US 45 Exit 21 interchange at Mayfield.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says the work zone from about mile marker 17 of the Purchase Parkway to about mile marker 23 will include the load with restriction for southbound traffic from mile point 21.63 to mile point 21.25. The restriction is along the Exit 21 ramp that carries through-traffic from Mayfield southward toward Fulton and the Kentucky, Tennessee state line.
KYTC spokesman Keith Todd says there is a 55 mph speed limit within the work zone with extra law enforcement presence, and the ramp has a 45 mph speed limit.
