KYTC NEWS RELEASE

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet and P&L Railroad plan lane restrictions at the intersection of US 60/Beltline Highway/Irvin Cobb Drive and KY 284/Bridge Street in PADUCAH starting Wednesday, Sept 21, 2016.

KYTC and P&L Railroad crews plan to remove the spur line rail crossing that runs at a diagonal through the intersection and pave over the area.  Numerous lane restrictions and work zone configuration changes will be required to facilitate the work and maintain traffic flow.

This busy intersection on Paducah’s Southside is at US 60 mile point 16.324 between Legion Street and Maggie Street.  It is along Bridge Street at KY 284 at mile point 0.0 between Thurman Street and Maggie Street.

There may be times when left turns may be prohibited during work in the middle of the intersection.  Some delays are possible.  Motorists should consider seeking an alternate route, if possible.

Removal of the rail crossing from the US 60/Beltline Highway/Irvin Cobb Drive intersection with KY 284/Bridge Street is expected to take about 3 working days to complete.  Removal of the rail crossing will provide a smoother ride and fewer roadway maintenance issues within the intersection.

Motorists should be alert for one lane traffic with work zone access controlled by flaggers.   Appropriate caution is required where equipment, flaggers, and maintenance personnel are along the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow.  Again, the work zone configuration may change frequently to facilitate various phases of the work.

Approximately 22,500 vehicles pass through this busy intersection on Paducah’s Southside in an average day.
