This page contains News and information about Kentucky State Road KY 92.
Judging from a map from 1937, it appears that at one point the two segments of KY 92 were connected by a ferry across the Cumberland River. In 1937, KY 92 was classified as an “improved” road—meaning some sort of high quality gravel road—from Monticello north to the Cumberland River. A ferry provided service across the river in the vicinity of modern day Lake Cumberland State Resort Park. Unlike the road south of the river, KY 92 between the river and Jamestown was a dirt road in 1937; however, KY 92 would have formed a direct route between Monticello and Jamestown.
By 1952, the next oldest map I own, Lake Cumberland had been impounded and the ferry was closed.
From the 1937 map, it appears that KY 92 south of the river would have followed a route along modern day KY 674 towards the ferry.
