US 45 Bypass closed starting Tuesday

A connection between US 45 and the Purchase Parkway will be closed into next year.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says starting Tuesday the US 45 Mayfield Bypass connection between the Purchase Parkway Exit 21 Interchange and US 45 South will be closed.

All traffic traveling south on US 45 from the Purchase Parkway will be detoured along US 45-Business through Mayfield.

All US 45 traffic wanting to travel north on the Purchase Parkway will also be detoured along US 45-Business through Mayfield.

The detours will add about seven minutes to most people’s travel time.

Southbound and northbound traffic on the Purchase Parkway will be able to travel through the exit 21 interchange at Mayfield, but the connection to and from US 45 South will be closed.

Crews need the closure so that they can work on construction for the new flyover ramps and overpasses.

The closure is expected to last into next year.
