$15 million Ky. 914 contract award

Hinkle will widen eastern bypass to four lanes


Somerset —

  Widening the existing two-lane section of the southeastern bypass will completely encircle most of Somerset with four-lane highways –– Ky. 80 bypass on the north and the southeastern and southwestern bypasses (Ky. 914) on the east, south and west. 
 The relocated Cumberland Parkway (northern bypass) is a four-lane highway north of Ky. 80 that currently extends to U.S. 27 about two miles north of Somerset.
  Cumberland Parkway, beginning at I-65 north of Bowling Green, eventually will be designated as I-66. If money becomes available, I-66 will be extended from U.S. 27 to Ky. 80 at Barnesburg and then through Shopville, Stab and Squib and across Daniel Boone National Forest to I-75 south of London near the weigh station.
