Paducah Interstate 24 Lane Restrictions: Be Prepared for 1 Week of Construction

Lane restrictions for work zone set to begin on Thursday along I-24 Business Loop/U.S. 60 in downtown Paducah

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has announced a lane restriction for the Interstate 24 Downtown Business Loop/U.S. 60 in downtown Paducah, starting Thursday. This is due to maintenance work by a contractor that will take about a week to complete, as long as weather conditions allow.

During this time, motorists should be aware of lane restrictions at the Broadway intersections with Third Street and Fourth Street in Paducah. The contractor will focus on painting traffic signal poles, bases, and support arms, which will result in reduced traffic to one lane as drivers approach Broadway on the northbound one-way section of Third Street and southbound section of Fourth Street.

Delays are expected during the movement and placement of equipment, so drivers are asked to exercise caution around equipment, flaggers, and workers. However, this work is necessary for improving the infrastructure and ensuring the safety of motorists in the area.

Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead, be patient, and follow any instructions provided by flaggers or personnel in the work zone. It’s important to remember that construction zones can cause delays and congestion, so it’s always best to plan ahead and avoid rush hour if possible.
