Highway Department may have KY 76 open this evening

2014-02-13 - Knifley, KY - Photo Special to CM. The Kentucky Highway Department was making speedy work of repairing the damage from the Columbia Gas Transmission pipeline explosion. Before noon, Adair County Emergeny Disaster Director Greg Thomas said that there is a possibliity the road could be re-opened as early as 5pmCT - just 16 hours after his Adair County 911 Center in Columbia received notification of the explosion. This view, from Bradley & Kathy Tucker's yard, looks over the damage to the still blacktopped KY 76 on the west side of ground zero. The road bed already has a far different appearance from early morning, when a visiting County Judge Executive asked if what kind of road it was. "Is it a logging road?" before she was told that it is a heavily travelled state maintained, blacktop driveway. The Tucker's home, not seen in picture, was one of three houses damaged in the explosion. Not, seen, but on the right hand side, was the home of Jim Hardin, which was totally destroyed. The third house, completely destroyed in the fire, was the home of Mr. and Mrs. Mike Berry, Kathy Tucker said.
