Good stuff.

I had a feeling they were going to go for a new alignment. It's definitely going to be costly. Will it be tolled?

Since KY doesn't have any toll roads currently (outside of the bridges around Louisville), I would think there would be no toll here.

seicer:
No tolls. There will be ramps at US 460 in Salyersville but not an interchange - so the at-grade will still persist. To the east, there will be an intersection for old KY 114, and the new alignment will split to the north and remain fully controlled access with no intersections to KY 114 closer to Prestonsburg. It will be (if I recall correctly) 13 miles between the west and east terminus.

Here's a Kentucky signage memory that I don't think has been mentioned before.

I could swear that the BGS for the exit off I-75 near the Kentucky Horse Park used to have what looked like a state route shield with a horse in it. I think it was the exit for KY 1973. In addition to the elliptical KY 1973 shield, the BGS also had an elliptical shield with a horse instead of a number.

I think this was in the 1980s and may have lasted into the 1990s.

I remember this too, but it was at the northern 64/75 split on all of the 75 north BGSs.  I thought of it as the Kentucky Horse Parkís logo at that time, and thought it was quite strange to see it on a BGS whose primary function was to direct traffic to I-75 north.  But in general, KTCís signage was horrible throughout the 1980ís and never really got better until the 2010ís.
