BG exit ramp moving in July

Some political heat and community concerns prompted the state to expedite the relocation of a low visibility exit ramp on the Blue Grass Parkway last year. Now the exit’s relocation is expected as soon as July.

According to Kenny Fogle, principal assistant to the Transportation secretary in Frankfort, Parkway drivers can expect a new ramp and increased visibility at BG exit 21.

More than a year ago the state announced plans to reconstruct exit 21 of the Blue Grass Parkway. The exit leads drivers from the parkway to U.S. 31E.
