U.S. 60 returns to normal traffic, businesses trying to bounce back
PADUCAH - After months of reduced lanes and barrels blocking intersections, the traffic flow on U.S. 60 on the south side of Paducah is back to normal.
About 4:30 p.m. Tuesday contractors took down barricades and redirected drivers to use all four lanes of the road. All intersections were opened and traffic lights returned to normal settings.
Michael Ruffin, manager at the Radio Shack told Local 6 he wasn't sure the day would ever come.
After all, they didn't hit the Thanksgiving deadline which would have made it easier for Black Friday shoppers.
"I did have some customers say it was difficult to get in here," he said. As a result he said stores will have a harder time making up for lost profits even if the road is back to normal.
