Edmonton to get new parkway interchange

EDMONTON — Edmonton City Council members were given an update earlier this week on the progress of the construction of an additional interchange at Edmonton on the Louie B. Nunn / Cumberland Parkway.

According to Mayor Howard Garrett, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet had a meeting about three weeks ago regarding the relocation of utilities in the area where the interchange will be built. It will be the second interchange for the city on the parkway and will be located where Ky. 68 or Greensburg Road and the parkway intersect.

“The utilities are scheduled to be moved by September of next year,” he said.  

Garrett believes the city will benefit greatly from the creation of the additional interchange.

“I think it’s much needed,” he said. “I think everyone is for it. That’s something that Edmonton has been pushing for quite a while.”

The new interchange will help the flow of traffic, possibly attract new business to a nearby industrial park and help alleviate truck traffic in the downtown area, Garrett said. Design work for the roadway portion is essentially complete and the structure design will begin soon, said Keirsten Jaggers, public information officer for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s Bowling Green office.
