Pennyrile Parkway transitioning to I-69

MADISONVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Kentucky transportation officials say contractors have begun changing exit numbers along the Pennyrile Parkway in western Kentucky as the roadway makes the transition to Interstate 69.

Kevin McClearn, who is the chief engineer for District 2 of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, told The Paducah Sun ( that state officials have asked crews to make the transition as quickly as possible to reduce possible confusion by travelers. He said there could be instances when the exit number on the panel sign doesn’t match the number at the end of the ramp.

Currently, I-69 ends at the Pennyrile Parkway and Western Kentucky Parkway near Nortonville.

McClearn said signs along the Pennyrile Parkway will be changed over the next month, though the official transition to I-69 is still weeks away.
