Kentucky Color: Dug Hill Rebuild

It should be a safer, more negotiable route, and beauty of area should be preserved

By Billy Joe Fudge, Retired State Forester

Just wanted CM's readers to know that the straightening of Dug Hill is beginning. Straighten might be the wrong word for I believe it should be less curvy.

During this time of forced frugality the State has chosen to lessen the degree of curvature on the top and middle curves of Dug Hill .rather than rebuild the road entirely by cutting the hill down to a nubbin.

I welcome, as do all who use that section of HWY 704, a safer and more negotiable Dug Hill however I am happy that it will retain some of its awesome ambiance and unique topographic qualities.
