Mowing Crew Begins Work on Area Highways
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - A mowing crew plans to start work along Interstate 24 on Tuesday.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says the crew will begin near the Ohio River Bridge and work eastward to the 70 mile marker at the Trigg-Christian County Line. This work will start with litter removal, with mowing to follow. The crew will only be mowing the median and a 16 ft strip along the shoulder, so the crew will be able to progress more quickly than usual.

This contract also includes a 3 additional sections of highway in McCracken County, including U.S. 60 from the Paducah Exit 4 Interchange westward to the McCracken-Ballard County Line, KY 1954/John Puryear Drive from Paducah Exit 11 to the U.S. 60/U.S. 62 intersection, and U.S. 68 from the Paducah Exit 16 interchange to the U.S. 62 intersection.

Mowing zones will be marked by appropriate signage and should be treated with the same respect and caution as other work zones. Drivers are urged to slow down and watch for slow-moving tractors and support vehicles.

Political signs and other advertising are not allowed along state right-of-way and should be removed. Yard signs and other signs create both an obstacle and a safety hazard for mowing crews and will be removed by state personnel.
