Work Zone Restrictions for Overpass and Bridge Approach Paving on I-24 near 28mm in Marshall County Starts Tue, Nov. 7

Work to take about 4 days to complete

PADUCAH, Ky. (November 3, 2023)  A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) plans a work zone lane restriction along a section of Interstate 24 in Marshall County starting Tuesday, November 7, 2023.

Both eastbound and westbound motorists on I-24 should be alert for a work zone lane restriction near the 28 mile marker to allow milling and paving of bridge and overpass approaches, including the P&L Railroad Overpass and the KY 282/Gilbertsville Highway Overpass.

Initially, all traffic will move to the left-hand or passing lane to allow the contractor to mill out the driving lane approaches.  The contractor will return the next day to pave.  Traffic will then be shifted to allow the same process on the passing lane.

This work zone will remain up around the clock through Friday, Nov. 10.

Motorists should be alert for slowing and merging traffic on I-24 as they approach the 28 mile marker.  Some delays are possible during the movement and placement of equipment to facilitate the work.

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

The KYTC Marshall County Highway Maintenance Crew will be pre-positioning traffic control equipment for this work zone on Monday, Nov. 6.

This is part of a larger project to smooth overpass and bridge end approaches along sections of I-24 and I-69 over the next two weeks.  Please be alert for traffic advisories for additional work zone locations as the work progresses.
