  • Wreck on Bardstown Road - August 26
  • Lost in LaRue - August 26, 2015

    This week I got lost on the Rolling Fork River that winds through the countryside of LaRue, Nelson and Marion Counties. My husband wanted to take the kids on a canoe trip. So we recruited some help, Papaw John and Uncle Brian, and took the kids for a two-hour canoe trip. This was the first time for Samuel, our youngest son, to ride in a canoe. He threw a fit having to wear a life jacket. His fussiness soon subsided as the water and dappled light shining through the trees provided a calming effect on all of us.

  • Roadwork begins in Upton and Sonora

    Temporary signals and barrier walls are currently being installed on the US 31W Bridge over I-65 between Upton and Sonora at the Hardin and LaRue County line.  The structure is being rebuilt as part of the I-65 road widening project.  One lane will remain open through the duration of the bridge rebuild. Delays will be possible at this location, especially during peak travel hours.

    The bridge project is expected to take approximately three to four months for completion. Weather will be a factor in the pace of progress.
