Drilling and Blasting to Begin Near New Interchange



Crews with Bizzack Construction LLC continue to clear land along a 1.4 mile section of the Mountain Parkway, and soon they will begin creating a wider path to expand the road.
Drilling of rock is scheduled to begin Monday, Feb. 9, and the first surface blasting along the parkway is expected to take place late that day or early the next day, near mile point 70 of the Mountain Parkway.
Periodic blasting will continue to take place in the area over the next few weeks during daylight hours. Prior to each blast, traffic must be stopped on the Mountain Parkway for up to 20 minutes for the safety of the workers and the traveling public. 
Scheduled blasts that will impact traffic will be shared at www.MtnParkway.com,
Updates also will be shared on the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 10 website.
The scheduled times of blasts may change in the event of unfavorable weather or other unforeseen activities.
