TRAFFIC ADVISORY – Interchange at I-24 Exit 42 in Lyon County

kentucky trans yellow 300LYON COUNTY, KY (7/9/12) – A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is stepping up work on Interstate 24 westbound at the I-69/Western Kentucky Parkway Interchange at I-24 Exit 42 in Lyon County.

The I-69/WK Pkwy ramp to I-24 westbound in this work zone has been reopening to normal traffic flow on weekends.  Starting July 9, the ramp to I-24 westbound will remain closed until the project to lengthen and widen the ramp is completed.  Southbound/westbound traffic on I-69/WK Pkwy will detour off at EXIT 4 and travel westbound on US 62 to access the Interstate 24 westbound lanes at I-24 Exit 40.

Closing the ramp and detouring I-69/WK Pkwy traffic via US 62 is designed to improve safety in this work zone for both workers and the public.

All westbound I-24 traffic continues to be moved to the left-hand or passing lane at mile point 41.6 in this work zone.  I-24 westbound traffic continues to have a strictly enforced 55 mile per hour work zone speed limit with double fines and an enhanced enforcement presence.

All other ramps around the I-24 Exit 42 Interchange with I-69/WK Parkway are operating normally.

Motorists are urged to slow down and use appropriate caution in this work zone where equipment and construction personnel are along the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow.  This work zone is expected to be in place for about two months.

This work zone is among several that will be required through the summer construction season as part of a $9.9 million contract to upgrade the Western Kentucky Parkway to federal standards now that it is part of Interstate 69.
