SALYERSVILLE, Ky. (WTVQ) – A construction milestone on the Mountain Parkway is nearing completion.
Crews on Salyersville’s Restaurant Row are finishing work on the final remaining section of the frontage road, according to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
It’s scheduled to be opened for public use within the coming weeks.
While the two adjacent sections of the frontage road were completed earlier this year, the remaining section will receive a final layer of asphalt before it will be completed and open to traffic, according to the cabinet.
Once the final section of the frontage road is open and operational, all remaining access points to businesses on Restaurant Row will transition completely over to the new backage and frontage roads.
Previous access points directly from the Parkway will be closed off permanently.
Drivers wanting to access businesses will be able to enter the frontage and backage roads from several intersections located throughout Restaurant Row, while traffic moving along the Mountain Parkway will remain on the mainline drive.
