A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has restricted traffic to one lane on a section of KY 272/Julien Road in CHRISTIAN County and has plans to start work on a section of KY 272/Canton Pike.

KY 272/Julien Road is restricted to one lane at milepoint 0.72 is to allow deck work on the I-24 Overpass near the Christian-Trigg County Line.  Motorists traveling KY 272 in western Christian County should be alert for one lane traffic with alternating flow controlled by an automated signal.  There should be no impact on I-24 traffic.

Starting Friday morning, August 25th, the contractor plans to begin deck work on the walking trail overpass along KY 272/Canton Pike at mile point 10.274 in Hopkinsville.  This is along KY 272/Canton Pike between KY 1007/Camilla Drive and Cypress Street.  Motorists should be alert for a work zone lane restriction.

Appropriate caution is required where equipment, flaggers, and construction personnel are along the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow.
