[Hal Rogers-Daniel Boone Parkway]
Effort Renews to Name Highway for Daniel Boone
Posted: 21-Feb-2005 5:27AM CST

Another legislative session brings about another effort to rename a highway in honor of Daniel Boone. Current efforts are focused on renaming US 25E between Corbin and Middlesboro—which roughly follows the route of Daniel Boone’s Wilderness Trail—in honor of the early explorer. The former Daniel Boone Parkway between London and Hazard is likely to remain named for U.S. Representative Hal Rogers.

The Boone Society has posted a petition requesting that US 25E be renamed in honor of Daniel Boone on their website: The Boone Society [Outside Link]

Astute observers will note that the text of the sidebar on the above referenced article is taken almost word-for-word from my topic describing the Daniel Boone Parkway/Hal Rogers Parkway.
