SALYERSVILLE, Kentucky — A field office has opened in eastern Kentucky to provide information about the Mountain parkway expansion project.
The new office is open Monday through Saturday in Salyersville on U.S. 460 in the Magoffin Plaza.
The Transportation Cabinet says there's also a website and a phone number for those who can't make it to the office. Call (606) 349-8160 or visit http://www.MtnParkway.com , or follow the project on Twitter (@MtnParkway) or on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/mtnparkway ).
The 46-mile project is designed to create a wider, safer connection between eastern Kentucky and the rest of the state. It's intended to close the only gap in a 400-mile, four-lane, high-speed road across Kentucky from Pikeville to Paducah. The project will widen 30 miles of parkway to four lanes and extend the road from Salyersville to Prestonsburg.
