Semi truck crash blocks I-24 in Marshall County, KY

MARSHALL COUNTY, Ky. (KBSI) – A crash involving a semi truck and passenger vehicle is blocking the eastbound lanes of Interstate 24 near the 27 mile marker in Marshall County.

This is along I-24 Eastbound just east of the U.S. 62 Calvert City Exit 27 Interchange.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet estimates the interstate to blocked until around 5 p.m. Tuesday.

Eastbound I-24 traffic is being routed off at Exit 27 to take U.S. 62 East to KY 453 North to return to I-24 at the Grand Rivers Exit 31 Interchange.

Drivers who wish to avoid the traffic backup at Exit 27 should consider an alternate route from the Exit 25 Interchange to I-69 South to the U.S. 68 Draffenville Exit 47 interchange, then east along U.S. 68 to return to I-24 at Exit 65.
