Paducah Downtown Lane Restriction: Improving Infrastructure and Ensuring Safety for Motorists

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

In downtown Paducah, a lane restriction will be put in place on the Interstate 24 Downtown Business Loop/U.S. 60 starting from Thursday. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s contractor anticipates that the work will take approximately one week to complete, provided that weather conditions allow it. During this period, motorists should be aware of the 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 during the maintenance work. As a result, 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. Delays are expected due to equipment movement and placement, so drivers are advised to exercise caution around equipment, flaggers, and workers.

Overall, the lane restriction and maintenance work are crucial for improving infrastructure and ensuring motorist safety in the area. Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead, be patient, and follow any instructions provided by flaggers or personnel in the work zone.
