I-24 west lane restriction planned for overpass repair

MARSHALL COUNTY, KY — A lane restriction is planned for Monday along Interstate 24 west in Marshall County that will tie into the Tennessee River bridge work zone.

The lane restriction will be at the P&L railroad overpass near the 28 mile marker of the highway. It will allow a crew to repair damage caused by a lowboy trailer that wrecked on the overpass bridge deck in October. Temporary repairs were made about a week after the crash, but now the contractor is returning to make permanent repairs.

The work is expected to take about two weeks to complete. At first, westbound traffic will move to the left-hand lane on the overpass. That traffic configuration will be in place for about a week. After that, traffic will be shifted to the right-hand lane for about a week.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says the truck and trailer left the scene in October after the trailer hit the joint on the trailing edge of the underpass, damaging the joint and the bridge deck. The cabinet asks that anyone with information about that truck call the KYTC District 1 Bridge Division in Paducah at 270-898-2431 or the Kentucky State Police Division of Vehicle Enforcement at 270-856-3721.
