Purchase Parkway Named for Gov. Carroll
Posted: 8-Nov-2001 10:26PM CST

As previously mentioned on KentuckyRoads.com, the Purchase Parkway has renamed in honor of former governor Julian Carroll. This article [Outside Link] in the Marshall County Tribune-Courier reports that the parkway is now known as the Julian M. Carroll Purchase Parkway. The article includes a history of the parkway and a quote from my next-door neighbor (literally) the state highway engineer, J.M. "Mac" Yowell, who says "(he looks) forward to when this parkway is part of (Interstate) 69.
