Bridge rehabilitation along the Louie B Nunn Cumberland Parkway in Barren and Metcalfe Counties will create lane closures and width restrictions on two bridges. The bridge at mile marker 11.4 over U.S. 31-E in Barren County and the bridge at mile marker 24.1 over KY 640 in Metcalfe County will have the lane closures with width restrictions until approximately April 20. The width restrictions is 9 feet.

A detour using KY 622, KY 100 and KY 585 will be in place. Motorists should plan ahead as the detour adds extra travel time to destinations.
