Preparation for the demolition of a bridge over the Western Kentucky Parkway has started. The KY 224 bridge, which is between mile markers 111 and 116 in Grayson County, is part of an asphalt rehabilitation project along the parkway. One lane of the bridge will remain open using temporary signals to alternate one-way traffic over the bridge. The eastbound off ramp is closed but the other ramps remain open. “It’s not uncommon for contractors to get on a job site, start working and then realize we’re going to have to tweak or adjust plans for how we maintain traffic during a project. That’s the case with the 224 bridge. It was realized we were going to need to do some ramp closures we originally planned not to do any. It’s necessary here to get the work done and do it in a timely fashion that doesn’t have the project drawn out over a long period of time. These decisions were kind of made at the last minute here as work started. As we go through the project and other traffic impacts take place, we will push to announce these impacts in a more timely fashion,” said Transportation Cabinet spokesperson Chris Jessie. The project is scheduled to wrap up by November 15 unless work schedules are affected by weather.
