Posted: 17-Aug-2009 10:25PM CDT

The Mountain Parkway is currently being widened between exits 43 and 46 near Campton. Several bridges and ramps will be replaced as part of this widening project.

From Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Department of Highways District 10 on July 13, 2009:

Bear Branch Road in Wolfe County to close on July 20
Closing related to Mountain Parkway widening project
JACKSON, KY Beginning Monday, July 20, Bear Branch Road in Wolfe County will be closed at the Mountain Parkway overpass near Campton Lake. This closure will last for an extended period of time, and is related to the ongoing project to widen the Mountain Parkway to four lanes between Exit 43 and Exit 46.
During the closure, a new bridge will be constructed for Mountain Parkway traffic. The existing bridge will then be demolished and a new one will be built to replace it, enabling four-lane traffic when the project is completed.
Motorists needing access to Bear Branch Road on the north side of the Mountain Parkway will need to use KY 746 and Calaboose Ridge Road while the closure is in effect.
