[Hal Rogers-Daniel Boone Parkway]
Bill Would Keep Hal Rogers Parkway Name and Name Second Route for Daniel Boone
Posted: 21-Feb-2004 9:41PM CST

The Kentucky House of Representatives passed a bill on Friday that would keep the name Hal Rogers Parkway on the London-Harzard parkway and would name US 25E between Corbin and Middlesboro the “Daniel Boone Wilderness Trail.” The house hopes that this compromise will be acceptable since US 25E roughly follows the path of Wilderness Trail. Daniel Boone helped blaze the Wilderness Trail in 1769. The path through the Cumberland Gap helped open Kentucky to settlement.
