Holiday shopping to bring extra traffic to Paducah roads

PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) - Kentucky transportation officials are reminding those traveling Interstate 24 in the Paducah area to be alert for traffic back-ups at the Exit 4 Interchange with US 60 starting Friday.

Officials say traffic back-ups usually develop on the ramps at Exit 4 because of heavy traffic in the mall area during the holiday shopping season.

The transportation cabinet will be using TRIPS Message Boards along I-24 around Paducah to remind motorists to slow down and use appropriate caution as they approach Exit 4.
