Kentucky Finishes U.S. 23 Project

A 30-year renovation project to four-lane all of U.S. 23 in Kentucky has been completed.

In late August, the region's main north-south artery became a 156-mile-long four-lane highway from the Virginia line to Portsmouth, OH. While some minor tasks remain, unofficially, the final 12-mile section of two-lane blacktop on U.S. 23 between Dorton and Jenkins is done. A ribbon-cutting ceremony is planned for mid-October.
U.S. 23 is one of the nation's busiest coal-haul roads. The project has been time-consuming and extremely expensive because of the mountainous terrain.
