Monks from the Abbey of Gethsemani of Nelson County would like to see the highway which runs in front of their Abbey moved in order to preserve the monastic nature of their abbey. The state currently has no plans to move the highway; however, the monks are starting a campaign to attend donations of land and money to help move the route. They also plan to seek assistance from U.S. Senator Jim Bunning to obtain Federal funds for the project.
