Spraying to affect I-24 traffic

A Kentucky Transportation Cabinet spray crew plans median spraying along Interstate 24 through Marshall and McCracken counties on Thursday.


Motorists are asked to use appropriate caution when they encounter spray trucks and support vehicles.


This spray crew will be moving at about 15 mph with a four-vehicle caravan in the left hand or passing lane of I-24.  The spray crew plans to start from the U.S. 62 Calvert City Exit 27 in Marshall County at about 8 a.m. and work along the westbound passing lane to arrive at the the Ohio River Bridge at Paducah around 11 a.m. The crew will then reverse direction about noon and work along the eastbound lanes of I-24 to about the 13-mile marker.


Motorists are asked to slow down and use appropriate caution when they encounter this caravan working along Interstate 24 on Thursday.


Depending on weather and other factors, the crew may be back out on additional sections of I-24 on Friday and into next week.
