Calvert City 'Flyover' Ramp Open Today
By West Kentucky Star Staff
CALVERT CITY, KY - Northbound traffic on the Purchase Parkway is changing to the new alignment in the Interstate 24/Purchase Parkway Exit 25 Interchange work zone in Marshall County this morning.

The traffic shift will open "Ramp A”, which is the flyover ramp to carry traffic to the end of the Parkway at US 62 in Calvert City and the exit for motorists seeking to transition to I-24 westbound. 

Motorists should be aware that access to I-24 westbound and Calvert City via the Parkway will require them to exit off  the Purchase Parkway to the right of the new alignment.  If northbound motorists remain on the Parkway as it was they will arrive at the merge point with I-24 heading eastbound.
Permanent signage will not yet be in place, but there will be message boards and temporary signage to direct motorists.  There will also be some pavement markings that will restrict northbound Parkway traffic to one lane at times on the approach to the new ramp.
There is still a significant amount of work to complete before other portions of the new interchange can be opened to traffic.
