The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet presented the results of alignment studies for reconstruction of a section of KY 144 near the intersection with Pleasant Valley Road in Daviess County on Thursday. The section of roadway is known for its eight curves.
Rick Boles has lived in the area for 20 years. He knows the road's reputation, but he has never had a problem. "I've got a little sports car and I've got big vans. As long as people drive the speed limit there is not an issue," Boles said.
The project is aimed at improving safety by realigning several curves along the mile section of KY 144. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says they will begin the project this summer and construction will start in 2014.
