MCCRACKEN COUNTY, Ky. (KBSI) – A crash has slowed traffic on Interstate 24 westbound near the 3 mile marker in McCracken County.

Paducah-McCracken County 911 Dispatch reports the non-injury crash involves a passenger vehicle and a semi truck.

Westbound traffic is restricted to one lane on the I-24 Ohio River Bridge where an Illinois Department of Transportation team is conducting a detailed inspection of the bridge structure.

Westbound traffic is slowed near the crash site, but still moving.

Passenger vehicles may self-detour via the U.S. 45 Ohio River “Brookport” Bridge to avoid the backup.

No semi trucks are allowed on the Brookport Bridge due to a 15-ton load limit and 8 foot width restriction.
