Signals to go into full service at 8 a.m., CST, on Monday

PADUCAH, Ky. (February 1, 2024)  Contractors for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) are continuing efforts to reconstruct and restore traffic signals in downtown Mayfield that were destroyed by the December 2021 tornado.

The following signals have been in RED flashing mode since January 2.  They are scheduled to go into full RED-YELLOW-GREEN operation at approximately 8 a.m., CST on Monday, February 5:

  • KY 80-Business/Broadway at U.S. 45/8th Street (U.S. 45 Southbound One-Way)
  • KY 58/Broadway at 7th Street (U.S. 45 Northbound One-Way)
  • U.S. 45/7th Street at North Street (U.S. 45 Northbound One-Way)

Motorists should be prepared for changes in traffic flow the restored signals will create as they go into full operation.

Many of the intersections in downtown Mayfield have functioned as ALL-Way Stops since traffic signal control systems and supports were destroyed by the December 2021 tornado. 

These three signals have been in RED flashing mode to allow drivers to become reacquainted with the signals and their locations.  Technicians have also monitored the signals while they have been in temporary red flash mode.

Additional traffic signals around the court square in downtown Mayfield are still under construction with intersections continuing to function as ALL-Way Stops.  Caution is required at those intersections.
