MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says a contractor for Paducah Power System is planning a northbound, daytime lane restriction for work along US 45/Lone Oak Road in McCracken County starting Tuesday, May 29.
The utility crew will be building tower foundations for a power transmission line along Lone Oak Road. This work along the northbound lanes of US 45/Lone Oak Road will require traffic to be moved to the left-hand or passing lane near Austin Avenue in Lone Oak. This is at US 45 mile point 6.742 just north of the KY 1286/Friendship Road intersection.
KYTC says drivers should be alert for slowing and merging traffic as the approach this work zone. This lane restriction is expected to be in place starting at about 9 a.m. and taken down at 3 p.m. each day. According to KYTC, this work zone will not be up during peak travel periods.
