MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

Heavy Independence Day Holiday traffic has caused traffic issues at two work zones along I-24, according to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.

KYTC said there is a major traffic backup from the I-24 work zone that runs from the 10 to the 16 mile marker on I-24. At time eastbound traffic has been backed up 6 miles to near Exit 4.

They said they've had reports of drivers turning and going the wrong way along the main line of traffic and going the wrong way down entry ramps to get off the interstate.

It is highly suggested that local traffic travel the I-24 Downtown Business Loop and US 62 Between Exit 4 and Exit 16 to avoid this major traffic snarl.

They also report an eastbound backup at the Lyon County work zone that runs from the 38 to 45 mile marker. Eastbound traffic is running about 20 miles per hour at this time. Drivers can avoid this work zone by detouring via US 62 at Exit 27 and KY 93 to Exit 45.

As a reminder, KYTC said the work zone along I-24 from the 86 to 93 mile marker in Christian County has been taken down near the Kentucky-Tennessee State Line. All lanes are open until Monday morning when the work zone will go back up.
