To be held in Prestonsburg
PRESTONSBURG, Ky. (March 31, 2015) — An informational meeting about the Mountain Parkway Expansion will be held from 5-7:30 p.m. on April 14 at Prestonsburg Elementary School.
Engineers with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet and its consultants will discuss alternatives to develop a four-lane, high-speed route along the KY 114 corridor between Salyersville and Prestonsburg.
Officials will show preliminary maps of roadway routes being considered to improve safety and mobility along the KY 114 corridor. Project leaders will be on hand to answer questions about planned improvements and gather comments and feedback about the alternatives being considered.
The Mountain Parkway Expansion will close the only gap in a 400-mile, four-lane, high-speed corridor for commerce and mobility across Kentucky from Pikeville to Paducah.
The 46-mile project will widen 30 miles of the existing parkway from two lanes to four lanes and extend the parkway between Salyersville and Prestonsburg. The entire Mountain Parkway Expansion, which is expected to be completed in six to 10 years, has a preliminary price tag of $753 million.
