Road work scheduled for Monday in McCracken County



McCRACKEN COUNTY, Ky. - A contractor plans to restrict traffic to one lane on US 45/Lone Oak Road in McCracken County starting Monday, November 11, 2013.

Starting at 7:00 a.m., traffic will be restricted to one lane on US 45 at mile point 8.35, just north of the interstate 24 interchange.

This lane restriction is to facilitate construction of a turn lane for a new convenience store just north of the Kennedy Drive/Lourdes Hospital Entrance.

Motorists should be alert for slowing and merging traffic as they approach this work zone.  Appropriate caution is required where equipment, flaggers, and construction personnel are working along the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow.

Central Paving Company of Paducah is the prime contractor on this project.

Work at this site is expected to take about 2 to 3 days to complete, weather permitting.
