The Kentucky Transportation cabinet has issued three traffic advisories affecting Marshall and Livingston counties.
â ¢ Westbound traffic will be restricted to one lane near the 29 mile marker of Interstate 24 in Marshall County today.
All westbound traffic will move to the left lane in the work zone from 8 a.m. to about 3 p.m., and delays should be minimal.
â ¢ Eastbound motorists on I-24 on the Tennessee River Bridge should be alert for slowing and merging traffic as they approach the 30 mile marker. A work zone has been established along I-24 just west of the Ky. 453 Grand Rivers Exit 31 interchange, about five miles east of the I-24/Purchase Parkway Exit 25 interchange work zone.
Some eastbound delays are possible during peak travel periods, particularly on Fridays. Local commuters should consider a self-detour via U.S. 62 and Ky. 453 to help reduce delays.
â ¢ Milling and paving is planned along Ky. 917/Stringtown Road in Livingston County beginning today. The activity runs from the intersection with U.S. 62 to the intersection with Ky. 93/Iuka Road. Beginning Monday, the contractor plans to close Ky. 917 for full-width paving. The contractor will attempt to provide access for property owners on each side of the paver during the closure.
The work schedule is weather-dependent and will automatically advance to the next working day until complete. Once started, paving is expected to take about three days. Motorists should be alert for one-lane traffic.
