Pipe installation work in Morgan County will require temporary road closures on Ky 134 next week.
On Monday, July 26 and Tuesday, July 27, Ky 134 will be closed at the 0.9 mile marker near the Mountain Parkway overpass. The closure will be in effect from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. both days. Mountain Parkway Exit 60, the Ky 134 interchange, will remain open during the pipe installation.
Crews will install another pipe on Ky 134 at the 3.15 mile marker, which is also near the Mountain Parkway. This work is scheduled for Wednesday, July 28 and the road will be closed from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Drivers on Ky 134 will need to find an alternate route during the closures, and there will be no marked detour. This roadway has an average daily traffic volume of around 170 vehicles.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet reminds motorists to drive with caution and watch for signs and workers in construction zones. Work continues along the Mountain Parkway Expansion with crews laying asphalt on the eastbound lanes in Morgan County between mile markers 57 and 65.
About the Mountain Parkway Expansion
The Mountain Parkway Expansion is a 46-mile transportation improvement project that will create a wider, safer connection between Eastern Kentucky and the rest of the Commonwealth. It is a key transportation project designed to close the only gap in a 400-mile, four-lane, high-speed corridor for commerce and mobility across Kentucky. The project will widen 30 miles of the existing parkway to four lanes and extend the parkway between Salyersville and Prestonsburg.
