Suggested detour routes for stranded drivers
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet sent out a release with recommended detours around the traffic situation still going on along Interstate 24. I’ve directly posted that advisory below.
From Kentucky Transportation Spokesperson Keith Todd:
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is recommending a self-detour to avoid a persistent traffic snarl on Interstate 24 between about the 70 mile marker and the 30 mile marker.
If you are attempting to travel I-24 eastbound toward Nashville between Paducah and Cadiz we highly recommend that you self-detour via I-69 Northbound to the Pennyrile Parkway southbound.
If you are westbound on I-24 we highly recommend you self-detour via the Pennyrile Parkway northbound to I-69 southbound. This will get you around the snarled section of I-24 between the 42 mile marker and the 65 mile marker.
This will add about 30 miles or 30 minutes of travel while avoiding blockages on I-24.
