Posted: 13-Aug-2003 11:53PM CDT

The cloverleaf-like interchange on the Western Kentucky Parkway at KY 259 in Grayson County is being rebuilt as a diamond interchange. The interchange was the location of the Leitchfield Toll Plaza before tolls were lifted from the parkway.

They are also reconstructing the US 127 - Bluegrass Parkway interchange from a clover-leaf to a diamond as well. As you may have assumed, there was a toll plaza there as well. What I don't understand is why. Convenience? As I recall we are under a budget crisis and important upcoming road projects are getting delayed and currently active projects are getting halted. Why waste crucial funds on petty projects that are meant to make driving more convenient?
