This rolling roadblock is to allow Paducah Power System to run a fiber optic line across the Purchase Parkway at mile point 42.41 to serve the Marshall County Hospital. This is near the KY 348 Benton Exit.
The Marshall County Sheriff’s Department will provide traffic control via a rolling roadblock starting several miles from the aerial crossing site.
Work at the crossing site is expected to take about 15 minutes to complete.
Motorists traveling the Julian Carroll-Purchase Parkway overnight on Thursday should be aware of this planned rolling road block. Both caution and patience are required in this work zone.
