From Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Department of Highways District 10 (Sept. 5, 2012):

Month-long bridge repair project on Mountain Parkway begins Monday, Sept. 10
Traffic to be reduced to one lane and controlled by temporary signals at Morgan-Magoffin county line

JACKSON, KY – A bridge repair project scheduled to begin Monday, Sept. 10 on the Bert T. Combs Mountain Parkway in Wolfe County will result in one-lane traffic and delays for motorists using this main eastern Kentucky highway artery.

Temporary signals will control traffic at the Mountain Parkway’s span at the Morgan-Magoffin county line near mile marker 63. These temporary signals will be in place for approximately four weeks as work on a bridge deck overlay project proceeds.

During the work, the route will be restricted to vehicles less than 10 feet wide. Vehicles wider than 10 feet will need to find an alternate route around the project between Exit 57 and Exit 72.

Drivers should slow down as they approach this construction zone, watch for stopped traffic and obey the temporary traffic signal. Motorists are asked to “Drive Smart” in this and all other work zones and be aware of workers, traffic control devices and construction equipment when traveling in this and other areas where projects are ongoing.

A similar bridge repair project has traffic restricted to one lane on the Mountain Parkway at Exit 46 in Wolfe County until Sept. 20. Drivers should expect delays at this location, as well.
