When is the Purchase Parkway I-69 project supposed to be completed? I see that the Calvert City interchange will be completed by next July, but I can't find anything on the Purchase Parkway projects.

This report states I-69 will be complete and signed to Wingo, as of next July.

So it will be interstate standard up to that old toll-booth cloverleaf in Wingo?

Has the KY-80 interchange already been finished?

Unfortunately you know as much as I do.  I googled “I-69 Wingo” to see if I could find out if construction had started on it yet or not.

It looks like the KY-80 work was done last year. Not sure when it was completed.

For the time being, it makes sense to just sign it NE of Wingo, since the Fulton bypass concept has yet to be finalized; when joint plans (w/TN) for the portion crossing the state line are in place and let, then sign the remainder of the route down to Fulton, provided the Wingo "bowtie" has been dealt with by that time.

Looks like somebody jumped the gun and added it to OSM already, and then all the way down to TN......

Looking at the map, the next two interchanges are in Fulton, and both seem to have substandard ramps.

So, I am guessing that after current construction is done and 69 is signed to Wingo, they will then fix the bowtie in Wingo and then fix the ramps in Fulton as part of the whole bypass project.

By that time I-69 in Tennessee might be done as far as I-155.

On the way to and from my parent's place in Tennessee this Thanksgiving weekend, I noticed that I-69 was labeled on both sides of the KY-348 exit at Benton. Each sign had a normal sized North and South designation with a disproportionately small I-69 shield.

Saw that during the western Kentucky meet that I hosted a few weeks ago. That wasn't there back in July when I scouted the meet. My guess is that it was installed as part of the reconstruction of the KY 348 interchange from a toll booth cloverleaf to a diamond, which was part of the I-69 conversion.

Just to clarify, I-69 North and South was marked on KY 348, not on the Purchase Parkway itself, correct?

I saw a "South I-69" sign on the parkway itself, just past the interchange.

what more needs to be done from wingo to the state line?

They're making good progress on the southern end of the US 45 bypass interchange (where you had to exit the mainline on a single-lane ramp to remain on the Purchase Parkway) and they keep opening ramps. AFAIK the only thing remaining between Mayfield and Fulton will be converting the old toll booth cloverleaf at the KY 339 interchange. I'm not sure how much work would need to be done on the Kentucky interchanges in Fulton, or if there are any bridges with height issues.

Would erecting the I-69 signs be part of the interchange projects?  I thought that the signing of I-69 was going to be a separate project like it was on the Pennyrile.

The below was in the 2018 Kentucky Transportation Plan posted on the Kentucky Thread:

Improve the Purchase Parkway from Tennessee to Cardinal Road near Mayfield - including the SR 339 interchange in Wingo, as part of the I-69 project (P 2023-24).

The "P" at the end means they are acquiring right of way.


I should add that I am disappointed that they are going to wait until 2023 to remove the bowtie interchange at Wingo.  Fixing that is low hanging fruit compared to the rest of the I-69 project.  I would have thought they would have done that part along with the rest of the upgrades going North to the I-24 interchange.

Just came up from the Murray, KY area yesterday, and saw that  for the most part, I-69 is not signed on the Purchase Parkway, but I did see an I-69 sign after I passed the revamped exit in Benton, KY.  Must have been part of the construction to put that sign there.  I can see it marked next year, since the I-24, I-69, Purchase Parkway interchange is well into its changeover.

New roadside BGSs went in this past week at the I-69/WKP/Pennyrile interchange directing travelers to I-24 and Paducah once again.  The one for SB I-69 traffic (the one I pass most frequently) reads "To I-24 West - Paducah - Follow I-69 South."

I'll see if I can get a pic Monday.

There was one on the westbound WK east of the interchange last fall.

It got replaced as part of this project too.  The new WB sign reads "Madisonville/Exit 38C" over "To I-24 West/Paducah/Exit 38A."

This is the southbound sign.


Edits: (1) Corrected the Paducah exit number and (2) added the photo.

The Calvert City Purchase Parkway project will be completed by July 1 according to this article: http://www.wpsdlocal6.com/2018/06/17/update-i-69-interchange-almost-done-finishing-touches-to-be-made/

This article reports that the Calvert City interchange is complete, the US 45 Bypass interchange in Mayfield is complete, and I-69 signs have started going up on the 31 miles between the two interchanges:

Quote
Interstate 69 in Kentucky now has an extra 31 miles following the completion of two major interchange projects.
I-69 will replace the Julian Carroll-Purchase Parkway from the I-24 Exit 25 Interchange at Calvert City, extending southward through Mayfield to the 20 mile marker. The designation is expected to become official following a Federal Highway Administration inspection of the projects later this month.

Governor Matt Bevin announced in 2016 that Jim Smith Contracting of Grand Rivers had been awarded a contract for reconstruction of the Interstate 24 and Julian Carroll-Purchase Parkway Interchange near Calvert City in Marshall County.
He was also the contractor for the U.S. 45-Bypass and Purchase Parkway Exit 21 Interchange southwest of Mayfield in Graves County.I-69 signs are now visible along the section of the Purchase Parkway connecting the two projects.
Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District One Chief Engineer Mike McGregor said the agency is now turning attention to completing upgrades along the remaining 20 miles of the parkway. He said they have started design work for upgrades to the Kentucky 339 Exit 14 Wingo Interchange and upgrades that will extend I-69 southward toward the Kentucky-Tennessee state line.
The final section of I-69 awaiting completion is the new Ohio River Bridge between Henderson, Kentucky, and Evansville, Indiana. A Draft Environmental Impact Statement is expected to be released late this year.

Yup, I remember that sign. It's been gone since last winter (I think one of the multiple snow-related wrecks in that area got it), and was replaced by a crudely-made "Madisonville - Exit 38C" sign, which was there until the new combined sign went in last week.

Went through the Calvert City interchange on June 30. On that day, the flyover ramp from the parkway to the connector to Calvert City was not yet complete, but the four-lane connecting ramps were open. In addition, on I-24 WB, there were new gantry signs installed.

My first post! Hopefully this is embedded properly. This is KYTC District 1's video of I-69 from I-24 south to US 45 near Mayfield. It includes the rebuilt interchanges of I-69/I-24 and I-69/US 45.

Welcome to the fun house!  Nice videos, by the way; thanks for sharing.  This obviously won't be the fastest segment of I-69; the 50-60 mph occasional curvature of the old JCP looks like it has been retained (good repaving job, though!).

Thanks! I wonder if OpenStreetmap needs updating for the I-69/US-45 interchange. I'm too far away to check it out anytime soon; however going by the video it appears the mainlanes flow thru the interchange. I-69 south no longer exits itself.
