Restriction planned for Paducah’s Beltline overpass
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says a contractor plans to restrict traffic to one lane along U.S. 60 at the Beltline overpass in Paducah starting next week.
KYTC spokesman Keith Todd says the restriction is planned to start on Monday, May 2. He says Irving Cobb Drive will be restricted to one lane in each direction from mile point 14.523 to mile point 14.871 on the overpass to allow application of a bridge deck overlay on the bridges over the P&L Railroad/Cleveland Street and over Mallory Street.
The section is between Old Mayfield Road and Brown Street in Paducah.
Todd says drivers should be alert for slowing and merging traffic as they approach the work zone. Delays are possible, particularly during peak travel periods.
The work zone lane restriction is expected to be in place for about 60 days, weather permitting.
