 PADUCAH, Ky - Travelers should be aware that work zones on Interstate 24 will still be up and in place through the Thanksgiving Holiday between Metropolis, Ill and Paducah, Ky. 

With heavy traffic during this holiday period, motorists should be alert for traffic backups approaching the bridge at Illinois mile point 38.5 and Kentucky mile point 0.0.

One advised detour is to take the US 45 Ohio River "Brookport" Bridge, but as a reminder is restricted to vehicles no more than 8 feet wide. 

The 8 feet wide restriction bans most commercial trucks from using the "Brookport" Bridge.
