kentucky trans yellow 300MADISONVILLE, Ky. (2/18/14) – We have an oversized load moving through Western Kentucky that may slow traffic, particularly as it maneuvers through intersections and interchanges.

This oversized load from Tennessee is traveling from Mayfield north on the Purchase Pkwy to I-24 Eastbound at this time. 

The load will travel I-24 eastbound to US 68 at Cadiz. It will then travel east on US 68 through and around Hopkinsville and on to Bowling Green. It is then expected to take I-65 North to the Bluegrass Pkwy eastbound headed for Ohio.

This is a boiler of some type that is 23 ft. wide and over 15 ft tall. It is taking something of a meandering route through Kentucky to be able to clear some overpasses and other obstacles. It is moving at a slow speed with a police escort.

Please use caution if you encounter this oversized load as it may impede traffic at some locations.

The trip through Kentucky is expected to take 2 or 3 days with the load stopping at night.
