Hopkinsville Legislator Denies Role in Delay of Funding for Parkway Extension
Posted: 24-Mar-2002 3:16PM CST

State Rep. Jim Bruce denies a role in the funding delay for building an extension of the Edward T. Breathitt Pennyrile Parkway from it current terminus near Hopkinsville to I-24. Funding for the project has been delayed from 2003 to at least 2005 in the new 2002 Six-Year Highway Plan. There is no formal record of how changes to the plan came about: it was conducted behind closed doors just like much of Kentucky politics has been done for 200 years; however, Rep. Bruce has been widely sighted as the cause for the delay.

Hopkinsville and Christian County officials say that the proposed extension is very important to development in the area.
