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

A lane restriction is scheduled to occur along the Interstate 24 Downtown Business Loop/U.S. 60 in downtown Paducah starting on Thursday, according to a news release from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. The work is expected to be completed within about a week, weather permitting.

Starting on Thursday, motorists should take note of the lane restrictions at the I-24 Business Loop and U.S. 60 at the intersections of Broadway with Third Street and Fourth Street in Paducah. The contractor will be painting traffic signal poles, bases, and support arms during this time.

As a result of this work, traffic will be reduced to one lane as drivers approach Broadway on the northbound one-way section of Third Street and southbound section of Fourth Street. Some delays are expected during the movement and placement of equipment. Drivers are advised to proceed with caution around equipment, flaggers, and personnel on site.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet advises motorists to plan ahead and use alternative routes if possible during this time period to avoid any potential delays or disruptions caused by the lane restriction in downtown Paducah.
