We have pushed and cajoled many to get both effort and answers about the Shelbyville Bypass. The project is woefully behind, and no one seemed concerned about that except for the Shelby Countians who kept asking the questions.
We voiced those questions and received, in some cases, nebulous responses, until our elected leaders stood up to do as we expect them to do.
Rep. Brad Montell and Sen. Gary Tapp asked questions, too, and now we have some answers. The bypass may not be completed any faster, but at least we have some explanations.
