I-24 painting starts in west Kentucky
TRIGG COUNTY, KY — Drivers headed west on Interstate 24 will encounter crews painting traffic stripes in west Kentucky starting Wednesday, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says.
KYTC says the crew is starting near the Trigg County, Christian County line near mile marker 70 and working its way west to mile point 0.0 at the I-24 Ohio River Bridge at Paducah.
Drivers are asked to be alert for a paint truck and several escort vehicles that will be making several passes in each direction. The signs on the support vehicles will show drivers how to safely pass the crew and avoid driving on wet paint. Drivers are asked to slow down and be patient as they encounter the moving caravan, for their own safety as well as the crew’s safety. The crew will also have a law enforcement escort.
Once painting along that section of I-24 is complete, KYTC says two more crews will paint along multiple highways across the region.
