Re-opening of welcome center delayed

OAK GROVE, Ky. (AP) -- An interstate welcome center in southern Kentucky near the Tennessee line won't reopen Wednesday for the Memorial Day holiday as planned.

The welcome center is for westbound Interstate 24 travelers and is near Oak Grove in Christian County and Fort Campbell.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says storms in the area delayed paving work on the welcome center's approaches. A statement on Wednesday said it was unclear when the facility would reopen.

The rest area is at mile point 93.
