FRANKFROT, Ky. (March 26, 2012) — A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to restrict traffic to one lane on Interstate 24 in Lyon County starting Monday, March 26, 2012.
The lane restrictions at various locations from about the 45 mile marker to about the 56 mile marker are to allow concrete pavement repairs.
Work along this section of I-24 is expected to take about 3 weeks to complete, weather permitting.Initial work will be on the eastbound lanes near the 52 mile marker. This work zone will move to various other sites along the eastbound lanes between the 45 and 56 mile marker over about the next two weeks. The work zone will then move to the westbound lanes along this section. We will attempt to provide updates as appropriate.
Motorists should be alert for slowing and merging traffic along this 7-mile section of I-24 through Lyon County. Appropriate caution is required where equipment, flaggers, and construction personnel are on the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow.This work zone will include a reduced speed limit with an enhanced enforcement presence.
