We welcome these new lights to deal with dangerous places on our roads.

WHAT WE THINK: The lights finally are coming on

Shelby County so often has appeared to be moving in the slow lane when it comes to matters of highways and byways – see the Shelbyville Bypass, if you will – that our recent giddiness about the expedited replacement for the deadly interchange at KY 55 and Interstate 64 sometimes seems like a bit of a dream.

That project is moving along quickly, right through the winter months, and we would have bet our asphalt that we wouldn’t have seen such activity in our lifetimes. We only can assume a more dedicated contractor was hired this time.

We can't let this outdated ramp become even more dangerous even while it is being replaced.

What we think: Danger remains on deadly ramp

We’re relieved that state Sen. Paul Hornback (R-Shelbyville) has our collective backs when it comes to our safety during the reconstruction of the eastbound ramp onto Interstate 64 from KY 55. We fear that if Sen. Hornback weren’t vigilant that those of us who drive this ramp regularly or occasionally would be dealing for the next two years with even more danger than we have come to expect.
