KYTC Seeks Feedback on I-24 Interchange Near Paducah Mall

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is seeking input on plans to construct a Double Crossover Diamond for U-S 60 at Interstate 24 in Paducah.  

The project aims to relieve congestion, improve safety and support continued traffic growth along US 60 near the Mall area of Paducah.

KYTC engineers have scheduled a public meeting for Tuesday, March 22 at McCracken County High School at 5pm.  

“We would like to urge anyone who regularly travels U.S. 60 through the I-24 Paducah Exit 4 Interchange to attend this public meeting,” said KYTC District 1 Chief Engineer Mike McGregor.  “Our engineers and consultants will provide a wealth of information about this project and will seek public input that will be incorporated into the planning process.”

The meeting will be an informal open house for the public to ask questions and make comments.  

Handouts containing information about the project will be provided. A video detailing the proposed improvements, drive-through tutorials for the DCD interchange, and other displays will also be available at the meeting.  Written comments will be accepted during the meeting and up to 15 days after the meeting at the District 1 Office.

The only existing Double Crossover Diamond (DCD) Interchange in Kentucky is at the busy intersection of U.S. 68/Harrodsburg Road and KY 4/New Circle Road in Lexington.
