Revised Jessamine County Land Use Plans Includes I-75 Connector
Posted: 15-Oct-2004 3:54AM CDT

The Jessamine County-City of Wilmore Joint Planning Commission recently approved a revision to the comprehensive Jessamine County land use plan. The new plan includes a new connector route from Nicholasville to I-75. The route starts at the proposed Nicholasville eastern bypass and extends to the north-east towards Fayette County. The plan does not indicate that the route will be constructed; nor does it show the final alignment of any such route. It was included in the plan only to show that such a route may someday be constructed.

The route also removes plans for a proposed “shared-use trail” along an old railroad corridor between Wilmore and High Bridge. Local residents had feared such a trail would bring crime and trespassers.
