holiday traffic 300CHRISTIAN COUNTY, Ky. (5/23/13) – The welcome center for westbound travelers on Interstate 24 in Christian County reopens today, Thursday, May 23 until Tuesday, May 28. Motorists will be able to use the facility during the busy Memorial Day weekend.
 
The facility was scheduled to reopen yesterday; however, recent storms in the area hampered the necessary paving work on the welcome center approaches.
 
Crews will close the facility on May 28 for two weeks to continue ongoing pavement rehabilitation work along I-24 at mile points 85-93.
 
The rest area is at mile point 93 near the Kentucky/Tennessee line.
