Parkway lane closures to begin today between Russell Springs and Columbia

Lanes closures are set to begin today on the Louie B. Nunn Cumberland Expressway in Adair County as crews perform bridge deck restorations.

Starting today, the Louie B. Nunn Cumberland Expressway will be reduced to one lane – both east and west bound – on the Russell Creek Bridge near mile point 50. In addition, lane widths will be reduced to 13 feet and the speed limit will be lowered to 60 mph through the work zone.

Work is expected to be completed in approximately one month, but may be adjusted to weather or other delays. Drivers should expect delays and are encouraged to allow extra time in reaching their destination.
