  • Bellwood Drive to close for three weeks

    Bellwood Drive in Elizabethtown will be closed for three weeks beginning Monday as city crews start work on an existing stormwater culvert crossing at Bellwood just north of Diecks Drive.

    Vehicle access will be restricted to Clays Point Subdivision as well as other area addresses through detours along nearby streets, including Monin Road and Savannah Avenue.

    City officials remind motorists to use caution when driving in this area.

  • Wilson Road at Lincoln Trail reopens

    After a one-month closure, Wilson Road now connects again with the north side of West Lincoln Trail Boulevard in Radcliff.

    The $7.2 million improvement project from the U.S. 31W overpass south to Lincoln Trail was financed with state money provided by the legislature to acknowledge growth related to the Army’s base realignment. It includes curbs, gutters, sidewalks and lighting plus a new quarter-mile section moving the intersection with the four-lane Lincoln Trail.

  • Fort Knox places signs of cooperation

    Work from Fort Knox signmakers and Radcliff city employees coordinated to quickly erect a new marker on the city’s south side commemorating the community’s relationship with the post.

    While landscaping and other site work remains, Mayor J.J. Duvall said he wanted the sign up in time to celebrate it with Col. Bruce Jenkins, the outgoing garrison commander. Jenkins, who proposed the idea for a series of similar signs in four local towns, will step down during a ceremony Tuesday at Fort Knox.

  • Flood warning issued for Rolling Fork area

    Residents along the Rolling Fork River in Boston are under a flood warning today. The flood stage is 35 feet and the National Weather Service is predicting that crest at 40.2 feet.

    The flood warning continues from Saturday morning to Tuesday afternoon. The NWS report says property impact typically occurs in the area when river levels reach 40 feet. Water will cross low spots on some county roads and some homes in the flood plain will be cutoff.

  • Homecoming Days lives up to name in White Mills

    Every year, once familiar faces around the tiny town of White Mills show up for the annual Homecoming Days celebration.

  • Rineyville home awarded to veteran's family

    Ashley Durbin peered inside the front windows Tuesday of the Rineyville house that is scheduled to soon become her family’s home.

    Her son and daughter scurried around the porch to get their own looks while her husband, Brett, looked on.

    The Bardstown family still hadn’t seen the inside of the 3-bedroom, 1,760-square-foot house that was given to them by a charity that provides assistance and awareness for veterans in need.

  • Blame it on the rain: Fourth of July dampened by weather

    A holiday hailed for its family traditions and public celebrations of American freedom was derailed slightly Thursday when a band of rain couched in the region, dropping buckets of rainfall and forcing delays to several events.

    Elizabethtown and Rineyville postponed their celebrations and fireworks displays Thursday while Fort Knox scaled back its activities from Brooks Field to Sadowski Center. Fireworks tents also felt the chilly touch of the rain, but some vendors said their regular customers were soldiering on and making purchases despite the dreary weather.
