Repairs on Mountain Parkway bridge in Morgan County to begin Aug. 1
Traffic to be reduced to one 12-foot lane and controlled by temporary signals
JACKSON, KY – A bridge repair project in Morgan County will result in one-lane traffic and delays for motorists using the Bert T. Combs Mountain Parkway between Campton and Salyersville.
Repairs to the span carrying the Mountain Parkway across KY 134 and Johnson Creek at milepoint 62.149, just west of the Magoffin County line, will start on Friday, Aug. 1. Temporary signals will control traffic at the bridge. These temporary signals will be in place for approximately 30 days as work on a bridge deck overlay project proceeds. In addition, barrier walls will be placed on the bridge, resulting in one-lane traffic.
During the work, the bridge will be restricted to vehicles less than 12 feet wide. Vehicles wider than 12 feet will need to find an alternate route around the work zone. KY 191 and KY 134 is the recommended wide load detour.
Drivers should slow down as they approach this construction zone, watch for stopped traffic and obey the temporary traffic signal. Motorists should always be aware of workers, traffic control devices and construction equipment when traveling in this and any other areas where projects are ongoing.
