MARSHALL COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

One lane of Interstate 24 Eastbound is back open in Marshall County, Kentucky after a truck rolled over.

According to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, all lanes between the 16-25 mile markers are back open. 

KYTC reported that a semi was blocking the roadway on Interstate 24 in the Exit 25 Interchange Work Zone.

Both east and westbound lanes of I-24 were blocked along this 10-mile section.

Some crashes involved SEMI trucks along I-24 between the US 68 Exit 16 Interchange and the I-24/Purchase Parkway Exit 25 Interchange Work Zone.

Marshall County asked at all I-24 eastbound traffic be detoured off at the US 68 Exit 16 Interchange and at the US 62 Exit 27 Interchange to US 62 and US 68 to allow emergency crews and tow trucks to access this section safety and work to clear the roadway.

A self-detour was available for westbound traffic on I-24 by taking the US 62 westbound ramp at Exit 27 to the Purchase Parkway southbound to reconnect to I-24 west.

Drivers are reminded that heavy traffic and weather conditions are likely.

An overnight low in the single digits and substantial snowfall overnight have created hazardous driving conditions across the region. 

Extreme caution is required.
