Just think about a piece of Americana that will be destroyed if Breezewood is bypassed.  How much longer will this go on?

I-69 has a Breezewood in Kentucky but they are trying to get rid of it.

I'm perplexed about the first statement/question; is A-71 trying to be ironic, or is Breezewood being equated with a historical monument?  If so, put up a fucking museum along that little stretch of US 30 along with some direct ramps bypassing the place; the museum can celebrate 40 years of politically motivated B.S.   If honoring Americana constitutes a "forced march" down a city street in the middle of a transcontinental Interstate -- just so some folks can flip a center finger at the driving public -- then that segment of history has indeed entered the Twilight Zone! 

And the "Kentucky Breezewood" (obviously Henderson) will be bypassed, despite any display of curmudgeony!

1. There is no A-71. It's A-73 and the next one down is A-50. Any talk of Q-175 becoming A-75 is long dead.
2. Please stop arguing. If the thread is over let it die. I think everything has been said.

I can see the genisis of this thread evolving into something like the numerical/sequential exit numbering thread.

I was just thinking the same thing. :-D

You and I will just watch this time  :-P ;-)

Oh yeah, been watching this one for years. And my view on the subject is similar, though not exactly the same. :-)

I have the feeling that in 50 years, people will still be arguing about passionately discussing Breezewood if a direct connection has not yet been built.

Like various issues, it has it's peaks and valleys.  Whenever something significant happens it'll get a little publicity, or whenever a journalist trying to market themselves puts out an article on a clickbait website "You won't believe what happens to this Interstate!" it'll get noticed, but it goes away fairly quickly.

Those people that are the target of such stories have learned not to comment, because, as you saw on Page 22, comments lead to further comments, discussion, and accusations.  When the story can't get fuel, it becomes lost when tomorrow, "20 reasons why Tomatoes are hazardous to your Health.  You won't believe #6!" becomes the headline of the day.

More likely, an app for whatever replaces smartphones that allows teleporting to the coordinates that you type in (provided that it's both a public area and a flat surface).

Yeah -- this thread has sporadically lapsed into a pale imitation of Monty Python's "Argument Clinic"

"I told you once....."
   "No, you didn't."
   "I most certainly did!"


......and so on and so forth.

The reason it keeps going here, is because of some posters who seem to use various arguments against building the connection.  The posters in favor respond to those arguments.

The direct connexion should be built as a P3.  Neither the PTC nor PENNDOT seem interested in it so they should farm it out.

I mean, drivers on the road could use some fresh farm made food instead of eating fatty fast food.

However, the single (and those functionally so) male drivers might well be eating strip-club food on their sojourns through beautiful downtown Breezewood.  IIRC from misspent youth, that means fried chicken wings and self-bake pizza; both of which fit neatly into the latter category above.

And the "Kentucky Breezewood" (obviously Henderson) will be bypassed, despite any display of curmudgeony!
Let me clarify something here: An ancient bell that hasn't rung since the 1830s, but was rung at the time of this country's founding is a "piece of America." A statue of a founder of a colony is a "piece of America." A town that has a section of a transcontinental interstate highway running along surface streets is not. There are things that are part of this country's history and fabric that are worth preserving; a town that has a major highway running through a stoplight just to attract visitors isn't really one of them. Clear?

Actually, no, not clear…because the quote should have been "piece of Americana". Different thing.

The Henderson KY pit stop is a living piece of yesteryear.  The city is still situated on the route between Chicago and Nashville.  The route serves a reminder of the country and it is ashamed that it will be bypassed.

Wait, what?

I wonder how our forefathers got to Chicago from Nashville? Interstate 65?

I know when Interstate 69 comes through town, decimating the local, homegrown Applebee's, the comfortable yet sleazy Economy Inn & Suites, the already-abandoned K-Mart, what remains of Shoney's, and the omni McWenby Hut - I'll shed a tear.
