Billy Joe Fudge: Road work needed on Hwy. 61 in New Columbia?

Call-in personal commentary from Billy Joe Fudge

Billy Joe Fudge reports that he's seen several near-accidents in New Columbia and hopes the City Council will address the road needs causing them in this month's budget session.

He says the challenges are occurring where drivers are having to guess who has rights of way and where lanes are, with no markings, no signs and no lights at the New Columbia turn off Hwy. 61 before you get to the Walmart traffic light heading south out of town.


Cars turning in or coming out from the hotel/Goodwill/Walmart section have no help from turn lane markings nor signs for guidance.

It is also very dark with no caution light and no street lights, especially in the rain, and it's just hard to know how to come and go there.

While the City Council is considering street maintenance, he feels this is one important area of need.

Road work needed on Hwy. 61 in New Columbia?



2017-06-10 - Intersection: KY 61 at Patricia Trail - Photo by Linda Waggener, ColumbiaMagazine.com photo(c).
Billy Joe Fudge says he's seen several near accidents as motorist attempt to turn left into Patricia Trail from KY 61 onto Patricia Trail (white car). The problem is far worse at night, worse still on rainy nights. Cars turning in or coming out from the hotel/Goodwill/Walmart section have no help from turn lane markings nor signs for guidance. It is also very dark with no caution light and no street lights, especially in the rain, and it's just hard to know how to come and go there.
