Ramp closure to affect Henderson traffic

A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to close a ramp connecting the Ky. 425 Henderson Bypass with the northbound lanes of the Breathitt-Pennyrile Parkway at Henderson starting Monday.

The closure of the Ky. 425 Henderson Bypass ramp to the northbound lanes of the Pennyrile Parkway at Henderson Exit 76 is to allow concrete rehabilitation work and diamond grinding along the ramp. The ramp is expected to be closed to all traffic for about three to four weeks, weather permitting.

There will be a marked detour via U.S. 41 northbound to Pennyrile Parkway, Exit 77. Traffic on the Ky. 425 Henderson Bypass seeking to take the Audubon Parkway eastbound to Owensboro will be required to loop through the Ky. 351/Zion Road Interchange to access the Audubon via the Pennyrile Parkway southbound lanes.

Motorists who regularly travel the section of U.S. 41 being used for the detour should be aware of increased traffic.
