Work zone lane restriction on I-24 westbound in Lyon County

Posted: Updated:

Contractors are expected to resume a work zone lane restriction on Interstate 24 westbound at the I-69/Western Kentucky Parkway Interchange in Lyon County on Monday.

According to a Ky. transportation cabinet spokesman, the contractor was able to take down the work zone over the weekend.  However, work has advanced to a point where the restriction with a 55 mph speed limit will now have to remain up around the clock for several months.

This work zone is to allow the southbound/westbound exit ramp from I-69/WK Pkwy to westbound Interstate 24 to be lengthened and widened.

We're told westbound I-24 traffic is moved to the left-hand or passing lane in this work zone at mile point 41.6.  This is for westbound traffic approaching the Exit 42 Interchange.  

The work zone has restrictions for southbound-westbound traffic on the I-69-WK Pkwy Exit ramp to I-24 westbound, including a 35 mph ramp speed limit with a stop sign at the ramp merge point with I-24.

All other ramps around the interchange are said to be working normally.
