Paducah Mall Area Interchange To Close For Five Weeks Beginning July 8 For Improvement Project
A major interchange in the Paducah mall area is closing for five weeks starting July 8 for construction work.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says main through traffic on I-24 will remain open while crews work on Exit 4 connecting to U.S. 60.
The closure of the exit will allow for the construction of final connecting points for a new Double Crossover Diamond interchange designed to increase capacity and improve safety.
Motorists will need to detour to Exit 3 or Exit 7.
The interchange will reopen by August 12.
KYTC says 28,500 vehicles travel US 60 through the Exit 4 interchange each day.
Work will also be soon underway on US 60 by the mall, causing shifting traffic lanes. This work is expected to begin Tuesday night and finish by Thursday night.
