Overnight work under way on I-24 in McCracken

PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) - It could be a slow go for motorists traveling eastbound on Interstate 24 in western Kentucky this week.

Workers are paving overnight starting at the Kentucky 305 Exit 3 overpass and continuing to the Buckner Lane overpass about two miles east.

The work is likely to continue until the morning of Aug. 22.

The state Transportation Cabinet advises using caution as equipment, flaggers and construction workers will be on the roadway close to traffic. The work zone will include a reduced speed limit, double fines and enhanced enforcement.
