PADUCAH, Ky. (Jan. 21, 2022)   A contractor plans to restrict traffic to one lane on Interstate 24 Eastbound at the Lyon County Weigh Station near the 35-mile marker on Tuesday, January 25, 2022.

This nighttime work zone lane restriction for eastbound I-24 traffic is to allow work on electronic vehicle monitoring equipment mounted on a mast arm that extends over the roadway at the eastbound entry ramp to the scales.

Motorists traveling east on I-24 should be prepared to encounter slowing and merging traffic as they approach the 35-mile marker.  All eastbound traffic on I-24 will move to the left-hand or passing lane in this work zone.

This eastbound lane restriction is expected to be in place from approximately 8 p.m., Tuesday, to approximately 6 a.m., CST, Wednesday.

Appropriate caution is required where equipment, flaggers, and electrical personnel are along the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow.

This section of Interstate 24 also carries Interstate 69.  Approximately 26,600 vehicles travel this section of I-24 between Exit 31 and Exit 40 in an average day.
