KTC: I-24 work zone from the 10-16MM in McCracken Co. to end 9/26 | Public Spaces
MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - Kentucky Transportation officials say contractors plan to remove the Interstate 24 work zone from the 10 to 16 mile marker in McCracken County by 4 p.m. on Thursday, September 26.
Although, drivers should be aware that some limited lane restrictions could still exist along the section of I-24 for finish work over the next few weeks.
The project cost $14.83 million and was divided into two sections to minimize traffic disruptions.
Erosion repairs, drainage improvements, guardrail upgrades and new pavement is along the 13 mile section. The project is completed more than a month ahead of schedule.
The $11.5 million in rehabilitation work along I-24/I-69 from the 31 to 45 mile marker in Livingston and Lyon Counties was completed by the same contractor this summer. Some guardrail and other finish work continues with limited lane restrictions along this section.
Work zone lane restrictions for $13.97 million in rehabilitation work along I-24 from the 86 to 93 mile marker in Christian County between US 41-Alternate and the Kentucky-Tennessee State Line remains active.
That work is expected to be complete in mid-October. Drivers are asked to use caution in this work zone where equipment, flaggers and construction workers are working along the roadway.
