UPDATE: I-24 eastbound crash cleared, traffic still moving slow

UPDATE: MARSHALL COUNTY, KY — Traffic is moving again on Interstate 24 eastbound in Marshall County after a crash caused traffic to back up for several hours.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says it could take several hours for traffic to return to near-normal flow because of a work zone lane restriction at the 30 mile marker.

MARSHALL COUNTY, KY — Multiple crashes are causing traffic to back up on I-24 eastbound in Marshall County.

Marshall County 911 reports a semi truck and dump truck crash on I-24 eastbound near the 27 mile marker. Both eastbound lanes are blocked at this time.

A spokesperson with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet reports one, possibly two, secondary crashes around the 24 to 25mm in the backup from the eastbound crash at the 27mm.

Eastbound motorists who wish to avoid the traffic backup at these crash sites should consider a detour at the I-24 Exit 16 Reidland Exit to US 68 North, then east along US 62 through the Calvert City Exit 27 Interchange to reconnect with the I-24 eastbound lanes at Exit 31 or Exit 40.
