PADUCAH, Ky. (KFVS) - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has completed work on an eastbound work zone lane restriction and eastbound entry ramp closure at the Interstate 24/US 60 Paducah Exit 4 interchange on Friday, Feb. 14.

All lane and ramp restrictions have been removed.

The lane restriction began at 8:30 a.m. and was expected to last until Noon.

The scheduled work was postponed several times due to rainy conditions.

When crews started the roadwork, eastbound I-24 traffic was restricted to one lane at Paducah Exit 4 and the eastbound entry ramp from U.S. 60 was closed.

The survey crew gathered data for the future lengthening of the eastbound entry ramp.

Future efforts to extend the ramp will require widening the Perkins Creek Bridge immediately east of the Exit 4 interchange.

All eastbound I-24 traffic were moved to the left-hand or passing lane in this work zone at Exit 4.
