Lane & Load Width Restriction on I-69/Former Pennyrile Parkway in WEBSTER County

Motorists traveling in Webster County on Interstate 69, formerly the Pennyrile Parkway, need to be aware of a lane and load width restriction for both northbound and southbound traffic.

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet spokesman Keith Todd indicates a contractor has placed the lane and load width restriction along 1-69, formerly the Pennyrile Parkway, just south of the KY 56 Sebree Exit in order to allow a deck overlay on the Deer Creek Bridge.

The work zone will have an 11 foot load width restriction, according to Todd, and a 55 mile per hour speed limit will be strictly enforced with an enhanced enforcement presence.

The work zone lane and load width restriction is expected to be in place until about December 23rd.
Motorists should use appropriate caution where equipment, flaggers and maintenance personnel are along the roadway near traffic.

As a reminder, Todd notes due to the new signage along the parkway for I-69 mile points on panel message boards do not match mile markers and do no match exit numbers at exit ramps. Motorists and emergency agencies should continue to use Pennyrile Parkway mile markers until they are replaced with I-69 numbers later this year.
