KY 731/North 32nd Street in Paducah expected to reopen Wednesday afternoon

PADUCAH, KY — The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says they expect KY 731/North 32nd Street in Paducah to reopen to traffic Wednesday afternoon.

The road was blocked between Lorine Lane and Spring Street in September 2017 due to a deteriorating concrete culvert. A new pre-fabricated aluminum arch culvert has been installed.

Crews are finishing installation of a guardrail. Once the guardrail is installed, they will have to clean up mud and construction debris before opening the road.

Drivers are asked to wait until all work is completed and the traffic barricades have been removed before attempting to cross the new structure.

The road is expected to be ready by 4:00 p.m.
