Miss Vicky just joking about the cow size blinders

Her animals will be just fine she says. Miss Victoria has begged for the lights at the KY 61/Cumberland Parkway interchange for years. She's thankful to Gov. Beshear and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet for making them a reality
Post in response to: State light shields could spare need for cow blinders

By Victoria Pike

I don't think it will be long before the lights will be on.

Electric lines were put in the ground today to connect the lights and the poles arrived yesterday and were being moved to the site this afternoon.

They have hit solid rock several places where wiring had to go which has delayed them some but they appear to be on a run in the last two days.

To the fellow who suggested they put blinders on my side, I welcome all the light they can muster.

I was merely making a joke about the girls new surroundings.

I have begged for these lights since the new interchange opened and am very excited to see the lighting become a reality thanks to Governor Steve Beshear and the KY Transportation Department.

Bring on the lights. - Victoria Pike
