Kentucky Utilities is currently replacing utility poles on U.S. 60 near the Masonic Home, while the state is working to secure right of ways to widen the road in that area east to Rocket Lane. The road project is scheduled to be completed in two years, leaving both the state and KU unsure if the poles will have to be moved again in a short time.
Steel utility poles on U.S. 60

Residents may have noticed a large gravel lot along U.S. 60/Frankfort Road, south of Bluegrass Farm and Lawn, that is filled with Kentucky Utility trucks, men in hardhats and lots of steel poles.

KU is replacing wooden utility poles along U.S. 60 and will add a transmission line for greater capacity due to safety concerns, community growth and liability.
