GCrites80s:
That and there's tons of other stuff named after him in WV so it gets confusing. It's like Veterans' Highways in Ohio.

tolbs17:
They delayed closing the Sherman Minton Bridge due to heavy rain.

Georgia:
Kentucky has the middle 8 miles of the 75 widening opening and it has been great to have.  Now i can wait for the first 5 and last 7 miles to be done!!!

How are they pulling that one off?  Did they take out the business on one corner and/or the rock ledge on the other corner?

Cutting into the side of the mountain on the east side of existing KY 15 and elongating the new bridge over the river and KY 80/KY 550.

An interchange with the bypass was never considered. They did look at making the bypass-to-KY-15 movement the through movement but scuttled it due to ROW costs. That Double Kwik food mart is relatively new and would have been very expensive to purchase and demolish and relocate.

Is this project still expected to be completed this year as indicated in this article?

Well, I don't have any reason to doubt the guy they interviewed for that story last year.  :bigass:

Yes, they should have it substantially complete by the end of this year, depending on the weather not being too bad this summer. It's possible that the final surface may not be laid down until next year, but the bridge over the river/KY 550/Perry Park Road should open this year.

The KYTC District 10 Facebook Page states that this project is substantially complete as of November 9, 2021.

It also looks like the KY 30 Realignment between US 421 and KY 847 will open in January.
