I-24 West to close at state line from Midnight until 4 a.m. Saturday

I-24 Westbound will be closed at the Tennessee state line for about four hours beginning at midnight tonight to allow crews to do repairs to a damaged section of guardrail at the east end approach of the Red River Bridge.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says with westbound traffic limited to one lane in the construction zone, there is not sufficient room to perform the repairs and keep the lane open to traffic.

Message boards will be placed in advance of the closure around mile point 10 and mile point 6 for notice of the closure.

Exit 1 provides closest detour route, where motorists can take Exit 1 off- ramp, turn left onto Trenton Road, proceed south and turn right onto Tiny Town Road, proceed south and turn right onto Ft. Campbell Blvd then head north back to I-24 in Oak Grove.
