Paducah’s Interstate 24 Downtown Business Loop/U.S. 60 Maintenance: Lane Restrictions and Safety Precautions

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

In Paducah, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has contracted a company to carry out maintenance work on Interstate 24 Downtown Business Loop/U.S. 60 in downtown Paducah. Starting Thursday, there will be lane restrictions in place that are expected to last for around a week, subject to weather conditions. Motorists need to be aware of the lane restrictions at the Broadway intersections with Third Street and Fourth Street during this period.

During the construction process, the contractor will focus on painting traffic signal poles, bases, and support arms. This will require reducing 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 likely during equipment movement and placement, so drivers are advised to exercise caution around workers, flaggers, and equipment.

Despite these challenges, it’s important for motorists to plan ahead, remain patient and follow any instructions provided by flaggers or personnel in the work zone. The maintenance work is vital for improving infrastructure and ensuring the safety of motorists in the area. With proper planning and adherence to safety protocols, everyone can benefit from improved road conditions in downtown Paducah.
