In Local, News by OC Monitor Staff

BEAVER DAM, Ky. — A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to close ramps in the northwest quadrant of the Wendell Ford-Western Kentucky Parkway/William Natcher Parkway Interchange in Beaver Dam starting Monday, Mar. 19, 2018.

This closure of two ramps is to allow concrete rehab work along each ramp and allow the ramp taper to be extended along each ramp. This is a continuation of concrete rehabilitation work along the Natcher Parkway from last construction season.

The Natcher Parkway southbound exit ramp to the Western Kentucky Parkway will close and the Western Kentucky Parkway westbound exit ramp to the Natcher Parkway southbound lanes will close Monday, Mar. 19, and remain closed for up to five weeks.

There will be a marked detour

Once the contractor completes work in the northwest quadrant of the interchange, the crew will move to another quadrant and complete the same type of upgrades until ramps on all four quadrants of the Western Kentucky Pkwy and Natcher Parkway interchange have been addressed. Each two ramp quadrant is expected to have a five week, or 33 calendar day, closure.

Appropriate caution is required where equipment, flaggers, and other personnel are along the roadway in near traffic flow.
