The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans a series of daytime work zone lane restrictions along Interstate 24 in Lyon County starting Wednesday, Jan. 25.
According to a news release, motorists should be alert for intermittent daytime work zone lane restrictions at various locations between the 34 and 55 mile marker along I-24 for about the next two weeks. The work zone lane restrictions are to allow maintenance and repair work on the emergency median crossover points through Lyon and Caldwell counties between the I-24 Cumberland River Bridge and the Cadiz-Princeton KY 139 Exit 56 Interchange.
The Lyon County Highway Maintenance Crew will be performing maintenance on the crossovers to provide safer and quicker access for emergency vehicles responding to incidents. The work will require all traffic to be moved to the right-hand or driving lane at each worksite.
The mobile work zone is expected to be active anytime weather allows between about 8 a.m., and 3 p.m. on weekdays for about two weeks. The work zone lane restriction is expected to be about one mile long and change locations from time to time. Improvements to some of the crossovers may take only half a day, others may take more than a day.
Appropriate caution is required where equipment, flaggers and maintenance personnel are along the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow. There may be an enhanced police presence in these work zones.
KYTC District 1 will attempt to provide timely notice should the work be completed earlier than expected.
