I-66 = Pork Barrel Spending

“They’re talking about budget cuts in our schools, how in the world can we afford to spend all that money on a road that isn’t wanted or needed?”

“I can’t understand that if this road is supposed to cross the country from Fresno, CA to Washington, D.C., why it would go through south KY in the first place. Guaranteed all the tourists will speed through this state at 75 mph, and not stop til they get to Virginia! The other thing is that no other state is planning this road-they said it wasn’t needed, even the Feds said it wasn’t needed. Why is KY so adamant in building this road?”

“I agree, I do not see any reason for this road. I am from the Chicago area where there is a road, an interstate, in every direction you can think of. I moved here partly because of the beauty and cleanliness of the area! I have not gone anywhere that I have thought, “gee I wish there was a different road cutting right through here!” If this road was needed or would benefit us in any way, I would say go for it, but that is not the case.”

-“My neighbor, its called Federal Pork Barrel spending. I am an Alabamian who lived in Somerset for 3 yrs from 1998-2001 and I traveled the 80 East corridor to London every week and Hwy 92 from Williamsburg to PineKnot every week as well. Everyone that ever came to visit me in that area always remarked how beautiful the natural surroundings were and I am here to tell you that Kentucky is one of the most beautiful states in America and I should know since I traveled extensively through south and central KY for several years. I have explored from Bowling Green to Campbellsville, Liberty, Russell Springs, Danville (awesome), Harrodsburg (awesome), Lancaster, Crab Orchard, Stanford, Nicholsville, Lexington, Richmond, Berea, London, Manchester, Corbin, Williamsburg and many more small hamlets I can no longer recall. In a word, Beautiful, relaxing and safe. I love KY and hope y’all fight anything that would change the way it is today.”

-“They should just use Route 80.”

– “They should just use Route 64.”

– “At this time when KY can’t agree on a budget, revenue shortfalls are being predicted, this road is ludicrous.”

-“These are our tax dollars-people should be less complacent about this issue.”
