This project is being done to address Control of Access issues with Interstate 69 and to prepare for I-69 to be extended northward along the Pennyrile Parkway.
Work at I-69 Exit 79 will consist of removing two entrances, one of which will be reconstructed off of a side street, and new right-of-way fence will be installed in places.
Work at I-69 Exit 81 will consist of installing some additional right of way fence.
Work at Pennyrile Parkway Exit 40 will consist on some additional right of way fence and adding an access road.
Work at Pennyrile Parkway Exit 42 will consist of some additional right of way fence, removing access to KY 254/I-69 ramps from South Drive, and some work on KY 254 including paving of the intersection to the I-69 NB ramp.
Work at Pennyrile Parkway Exit 49 will consist of installing some additional right of way fence.
While some of this work can be completed off on right of way without lane restrictions, motorists should be alert lane and shoulder restrictions at these locations. During paving and othet work on KY 254 at Pennyrile Parkway Exit 42 motorists should be prepared to encounter one lane traffic with flow controlled by flaggers. Motorists can expect to encounter one lane traffic controlled by flaggers in the work zone. Appropriate caution is required where equipment, flaggers, and construction personnel are along the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow.
