Traffic ALERT

We have a SEMI that has crashed in the median of I-24 at the 7 mile marker in MCCRACKEN County.

At this time One Lane is open eastbound and one lane is open westbound with all traffic moved to the right-hand or driving lane.

At this time the wrecker service plans to attempt to remove the truck with the load of lumber still in place.  If that is unsuccessful the load of lumber may have to be offloaded before the SEMI can be uprighted and removed.

The recover crew will attempt to maintain one lane of traffic.  However, during final recovery efforts traffic may have to be halted at this site.

Estimated duration is 4 to 6 hours.

Detour around this crash site is between Exit 11 to Exit 16 via US 62 and KY 1954.
