Beaver Dam Rest Area Closed Temporarily
By West Kentucky Star Staff
BEAVER DAM, KY - A popular rest stop on the Western Kentucky Parkway has temporarily closed its doors and switched off the gas pumps as the lease with the current vendor has expired.

According to a press release from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, the Beaver Dam rest area, located in the median of the Parkway at mile marker 75, will be closed temporarily. 

Because of liability issues, the state decided to close the rest area when an agreement administered between the Finance Cabinet and vendor expired. The closure took effect because the current vendor provided an incomplete response to the state's request for proposals and was non-responsive to the state's request for more information.

"KYTC is currently in a bidding process. After the current vendor turned in an incomplete application, the Cabinet was forced to actively begin seeking a new one for the Beaver Dam rest area," said Asa James Swan, chief of staff of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. 

Re-opening the Beaver Dam rest area will be a top priority for KYTC.
