PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) — A section of Pines Rd in Paducah will be closed for most of the day as ATMOS Energy conducts maintenance work between Friedman Lane and Buckner Lane.

The closure, slated to last through the end of the day, will affect traffic flow in the area. However, drivers can utilize a detour via Dove Lane to Stonegate while Pines Rd remains closed.

ATMOS Energy has been actively involved in ongoing work in the Buckner Lane vicinity for several months, indicating a continuation of maintenance efforts.

Furthermore, motorists should anticipate a closure of Cardinal at Alban Barkley Drive, although access will be maintained at the Buckner Lane end.

These closures are part of ongoing infrastructure maintenance efforts and are expected to inconvenience drivers temporarily.
