Transportation Cabinet says to expect heavier I-24 traffic soon

Staff report

Motorists traveling Interstate 24 through western Kentucky should expect increased traffic now through mid-April, state transportation officials said.

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet spokesman Keith Todd said the surge will come from travelers going to and from spring break destinations.

"On Friday, there is a major surge of traffic along the eastbound lanes of I-24 almost every week," he said. "That surge becomes more pronounced along the 93-mile long corridor starting in mid-March and continuing into April."

In Paducah, peak traffic counts occur between Exits 3 and 16, which has about 44,546 vehicles traveling through every day on average.

Motorists also will encounter work zones for Interstate 69 upgrades at the I-24/Purchase Parkway Exit 25 interchange near Calvert City.

Past that, work is ongoing around Mile Point 29.5 on I-24. Currently, the work zone has a westbound only lane restriction and will move over to an eastbound lane restriction in April.
