Nine years after rights of way were completed, the extension of Ring Road to the Western Kentucky Parkway has been completed. The parkway exit opened today following a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The $13.5 million extension now is less than a mile from Interstate 65. Using football terminology, state Rep. Jimmie Lee defined a new southern exit for Elizabethtown off I-65 as the goal line.
“As of today, we’re in the red zone,” he said.
Elizabethtown Mayor Edna Berger offered a similar sentiment in an interview.
