Lane Restriction at I-24/I-69 Interchange
By WestKyStar Staff
EDDYVILLE, KY - A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans has restricted traffic to one lane on Interstate 24 westbound at the I-69/Western Kentucky Parkway Interchange in Lyon County.
This work zone is to allow the southbound/westbound exit ramp from I-69/WK Pkwy to westbound Interstate 24 to be lengthened and widened.
All westbound I-24 traffic will move to the left-hand lane as they approach the Exit 42 Interchange. This work zone includes restrictions for southbound/westbound traffic on the I-69/WK Pkwy Exit ramp to I-24 westbound. There is also a strictly enforced 55 mile per hour speed limit with an enhanced police presence.
Motorists are urged to slow down and use appropriate caution in this work zone. Due to the limited work space along the ramp, equipment and construction personnel are in close proximity to traffic flow. The limited work space also creates a shorter than normal merge zone for traffic entering Interstate 24 from this ramp site.
This work zone is expected to be in place for about two months.
