Trucks using GPS have had problems with directions to Vanderbilt Minerals and Vanderbilt Chemicals in Murray, KY

Last Edited: October 8, 2015 // by TruckerScape, Inc.

According to Vanderbilt Shipping/Receiving, some systems have not recognized the name of the access street as Pella Way. TruckerScape’s system suggested an approach by different streets that was incorrect. The correct routes from US-641 SB and NB are actually very simple, as shown below.  (For dock site information and exit route, see full listing in Site Search.)

Description: From US-641 SB towards Murray KY

Comments: Our driver’s GPS instructed him to drive south into Murray, turn L on Main St (KY-94), then L on Knight Rd to the plant. But Knight Rd does not go through to Pella Way and this would not be a direct route anyway. Follow the directions below.

Step    Instruction

1        On US-641 SB towards Murray, drive to KY-80.

Remarks: KY-80 is next lighted intersection approx 0.2 mi after you pass large Paschal Truck Lines (PTL) drop yard LHS. Black-on-white KY-80 sign RHS approx 400 ft before you reach the intersection and also on near R corner. Dedicated RT and LT lanes. Intersection is approx 2.0 mi from Murray.

2        Continue on US-641 SB straight through KY-80 intersection approx 0.4 mi to Pella Way.

Remarks: Next lighted intersection. Small black-on-yellow Pella Way sign RHS approx 400 ft before you reach the intersection. Dedicated RT and LT lanes. If you reach BP truck stop RHS, you have missed the LT onto Pella Way. Use the truck stop to turn around on US-641 and return approx 0.3 mi to Pella Way.

3        L on Pella Way approx 0.4 mi to Vanderbilt Minerals and Vanderbilt Chemicals entrance driveway.

Remarks: At approx 0.2 mi pass Melvin Henley Dr, a T intersection R leading to large Pella Manufacturing Plant and employee parking lot. Continue straight on Pella Way past first Vanderbilt driveway, a T intersection L at approx 0.3 mi. This driveway is locked. Second driveway at approx 0.4 mi is T intersection L. It takes you to guard shack and yard with several bldgs and docks. Beyond second driveway, Pella Way is blocked off.

4        L on Vanderbilt Minerals and Vanderbilt Chemicals entrance driveway approx 200 ft to guard shack.
