The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has awarded $13.4 million for improvements to Interstate 24 in McCracken County. The project to replace asphalt pavement between Exits 3 and 16 begins in March. Grand Rivers-based Jim Smith Contracting Company will head up the project. It’s slated for completion by the end of September next year.
UPDATE at 2:49 p.m.: The crash site is clear and both eastbound lanes are open.
Crews have cleared one eastbound lane on Interstate 24 in Christian County following a semi truck crash this morning. The site should be clear in approximately three hours. Both eastbound lanes were blocked when the semi overturned before 7 a.m. near the 72 mile marker. Kentucky Transportation Cabinet spokesman Keith Todd says traffic was detoured at Exit 65.
