Closure planned for Paducah’s 16th street, Kentucky Avenue intersection Friday

As part of ongoing reconstruction along Kentucky Avenue in Paducah, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says 16th Street will be closed to through traffic at the Kentucky Avenue intersection on Friday.

KYTC spokesman Keith Todd says 16th Street will be closed so old concrete pavement can be removed along the south side of the intersection and replaced with gravel. The closure will begin at 7 a.m. on Friday and is expected to reopen to through traffic around 3:30 p.m. the same day.

There’ll be no access to or from 16th Street to the south of Kentucky Avenue while the work is going on during the day Friday, Todd says. The one lane of westbound traffic along Kentucky Avenue is expected to remain open.
