LEXINGTON, KY - (December 16, 2002) - Friends and family joined state and local officials in a dedication ceremony today to honor Ewart W. Johnson of Winchester, Kentucky. The Boonesboro Bridge on KY 627 was renamed the Ewart W. Johnson Bridge in appreciation of his service to Madison and Clark Counties and to the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
Mr. Johnson served as the Kentucky State Parks Commissioner from 1971 - 1975, and was instrumental in the construction of KY 627 from Winchester to Boonesboro. Secretary of Transportation James C. Codell, III said, “Ewart Johnson had a vision to provide the citizens of Winchester and Boonesboro with a safer roadway. Tragically, seven people had died in seventeen months on the current road. He wanted a new road built between Winchester and Boonesboro because he wanted to save lives.”
His accomplishments as Commissioner of Parks include the construction of Fort Boonesborough at Fort Boonesborough State Park. The beginning development of what is now the Kentucky Horse Park, and the completion of an 18-hole golf course at Lake Barkley State Resort Park where he hosted the first Boots Randolph Invitational Golf Tournament. This golf tournament has since become an annual event.
Secretary of Tourism and Acting Commissioner of Parks, Ann R. Latta praised Johnson’s commitment. “Through his leadership, countless thousands of visitors have learned more about Kentucky’s history and have enjoyed a wide variety of recreational opportunities.”
