Cumberland Parkway Lanes Reopened Following Fatal Crash

Update:

The Kentucky Department of Highways says the crash scene on the Cumberland Parkway has been cleared, and that all lanes have been reopened.

Original post:

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet sent us the following Friday morning:

A two vehicle (fatality) crash in the Westbound lanes of the Cumberland (Nunn) Parkway near MP 33 (approximately 5 miles East of the US 68/Edmonton interchange) has closed the road in that direction.  The duration of the closure is likely 2 plus hours.  A detour has been setup for Eastbound traffic to exit the Parkway at KY 61 (Columbia) to KY 80 and reenter the Parkway at Edmonton on US 68/80.  Also, traffic the queue is being passed through the crash location utilizing one Eastbound lane.  This will be discontinued after the queue has been emptied.

Motorists are advised to use caution in this area of Metcalfe and Adair Counties.
