I-24 Tennessee River Bridge work zone

A work zone along Interstate 24 at mile marker 29 on the Tennessee River Bridge in Kentucky is causing substantial travel delays for the 4th of July Holiday and vacation traffic.

Because of this, many drivers are using U.S. 62 between exit 40 at Eddyville and exit 27 at Calvert City as an alternate route.

However, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 1 says the weekend traffic volume has also caused substantial delays along U.S. 62.

The transportation cabinet will open both lanes along this work zone by Tuesday, July 2, and will offer an additional alternate route to help drivers avoid delays during peak travel periods.

Below is the transportation cabinets recommended detours:

I-24 eastbound alternate from Paducah to Nashville

At I-24 exit 25, take Interstate 69 Southbound to Draffenville U.S.68 exit 47. Then, follow U.S. 68 Eastbound to the KY 80 intersection at Aurora and turn left to continue following U.S. 68 Eastbound through Land Between The Lakes and to the I-24 Cadiz Exit 65 interchange to return I-24 westbound.

I-24 westbound alternate from Paducah to Nashville

At the I-24 Cadiz exit 65 interchanges, take U.S. 68 Westbound through Land Between The Lakes, then turn right at Aurora to continue on U.S. 68 West to the Draffenville exit 47 interchanges, then take I-69 North to rejoin I-24 Westbound.
