I-24 Pothole Repair Underway in McCracken County
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH, KY - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet McCracken County Highway Mainteance Crew plans pothole patching along Interstate 24 in McCracken County, today.
Starting near the 13 mile marker, KYTC says the pothole patching crew will be working westbound along I-24 around Paducah to about the 2 mile marker. The crew will then turn eastbound and work from the 2 mile marker back to the 13 mile marker.
This will be a moving operation with a short lane restriction. The work caravan is not likely to be at any one location more than 10 or 15 minutes.
Most of the potholes along this section appear to be on the westbound side and mainly near bridge ends. The crew anticipates taking a couple of hours to cover this section in each direction.
Motorists are asked to be alert for slowing and merging traffic. Motorists should slow down and use appropriate caution where equipment, flaggers, and maintenance personnel are along the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow.
