MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - Interstate 24 eastbound lanes are backed up to the 20 mile marker.

An oversized load was struck in the work zone on the I-24 Tennessee River Bridge at the 30 mile marker this afternoon.

Traffic is expected to be backed up for the next 3 hours.


This estimate is based on the time it will take for traffic to clear after the eastbound lanes of I-24 reopen.


Anyone heading from Paducah to Nashville should consider taking US 68 from Exit 16 at Reidland to Cadiz Exit 65 to avoid the back up.
