A contractor for P&L Railroad plans to close U.S. 60-Business/Park Avenue in Paducah starting Tuesday.

This closure at the one-way westbound intersection with North Ninth Street is to allow rail crossing upgrades.

The roadway at this site is expected to close promptly at 7 a.m. on Tuesday. It is expected to reopen to traffic late on July 24.

There will be marked detour via U.S. 45-Business/North Eighth Street and U.S. 45/H.C. Mathis Drive.

Motorists who regularly travel the one-way westbound section of U.S. 60-Business/Park Avenue near Ninth Street in Paducah should make advance alternate travel plans next week.

P&L Railroad and Kentucky Transportation Cabinet personnel will attempt to provide timely notice when the roadway is able to reopen to traffic at this site.

Approximately 4,500 vehicles travel this one-way westbound section of U.S. 60-Business in an average day.
