Public invited to learn more about Mountain Parkway construction

Staff Report

FRANKFORT – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will hold a meeting later in the month month to share information about construction activities starting in Salyersville as part of the Mountain Parkway Expansion.

The meeting will serve as a preview of the three-year construction project to improve safety and mobility along Salyersville’s Restaurant Row. The project runs along a nearly 2 1/2 mile corridor – from just east the end of the current Mountain Parkway to just east of the KY 114/US 460 junction (Rock House Road).

Over the next three years, the main roadway will be widened to four lanes and converted to a partially controlled parkway that will improve the flow of traffic through Restaurant Row while ensuring access to businesses, residences and other facilities. The project also includes improving and expanding a system of local access roads along what will become an extension of the Mountain Parkway.

The meeting will be held at Magoffin County High School (1100 East Mountain Parkway) from 5-7 p.m on Sept. 27.
