I-24 Work Zone Back Up in Paducah
By WestKyStar Staff
PADUCAH, KY - The work zone along that was temporarily removed on Interstate 24 between exit 3 and mile marker 9 in McCracken County is back.
This work zone will include lane restrictions for both eastbound and westbound traffic. It had been taken down to allow for better traffic flow during the AQS Quilt Show and Contest.
Work zones remain up along I-24 in Livingston and Lyon Counties (from the 31 to 38 mile marker) and in Christian County (from the 85 to 93 mile marker). The work zone in Christian County also includes a 16-foot width limit because of excavation and bridge work near the Kentucky-Tennessee State Line.
Caution is required in these work zones, where motorists will see equipment, flaggers, and construction personnel along the roadway.
All of these work zones along I-24 through Kentucky include 55 MPH speed limit, with enhanced police presence and double fines for citations.
