COLUMN: Funding road project would improve safety on Devers Curve

-A A +A
By Linda Ireland

 In 2004 and 2005, I worked on a couple of stories about dangerous roads in LaRue County.

One of the most hazardous, according to data compiled by Kentucky State Police, is an area between the 16- and 17-mile markers on U.S. 31-E known as Devers Curve.

During 2004, the curve, smack dab in the center of young Abe Lincoln country, averaged a crash monthly. 

Many of the crashes caused injuries and some caused deaths.

Just a little way down the road is Enlow’s Curve – almost as notorious as Dever’s Curve in terms of crashes.
