CHRISTIAN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - Traffic for drivers in Christian County, Kentucky is slow.

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet officials said the eastbound traffic on Interstate 24 continues to be restricted to one lane at the 74 mile marker.

Westbound lanes are open. This is due to an overnight crash.

The truck involved in the crash has been offloaded. Officials said they will need to close all lanes while they recover the truck.

They estimate the closure will last one hour.

Officials said there will be no marked detour but motorists should consider a self-detour along the Pennyrile Parkway and US 68 between I-24 exit 86 and exit 65 at Cadiz.
