Temporary Traffic Controls to Continue on Mountain Parkway

As transportation professionals and contractors across the country mark National Work Zone Awareness Week, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) reminds motorists to drive with caution in the Mountain Parkway Expansion construction zone. Four miles of Parkway are currently under construction in Magoffin County.

“We will continue to have flaggers and temporary traffic control measures in place throughout the spring and summer months,” Mountain Parkway Expansion project manager Aric Skaggs said. “Construction crews are working hard to build a wider, safer roadway. That starts with a safe work zone.”

Drivers in the Mountain Parkway project area, mile points 65 to 69.6, should slow down and be alert for brief traffic stoppages as crews haul material across the roadway. Construction of this Magoffin County segment includes bridges, culverts and a new road alignment to widen the Parkway to four lanes.
