Motorists who frequently drive on the Breathitt-Pennyrile Parkway need to be aware of a ramp closure next week.
A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to close the southbound exit ramp to US 68/80 and the northbound entry ramp to the parkway in Christian County this Tuesday.
Officials say this ramp closure at Exit 9, along with lane restrictions on the main line of the parkway, is to allow substructure painting on the KY 107/East 7th Street Overpass in Hopkinsville.
All traffic along the main line of the parkway will initially move to the left-hand or passing lane in this work zone.
Officials say there will be a marked detour for the closed ramps and access to and from the north on the Pennyrile during this project will be allowed.
