Over the years, I've written several posts in opposition to the proposed I-75 Connector that would slice through Jessamine and Madison counties to connect Nicholasville with the interstate. The proposed road is expensive, wouldn't add much time savings for travelers, would destroy natural landscapes and historic places, and is an all-around bad idea.
In one post, I wrote about how the Economics of I-75 Connector Don't Add Up. The proposed cost of this 13-mile road is about $400-500 million. All to build a new road while existing infrastructure needs critical repairs. In another post, Marble Creek is a Jessamine County Treasure, I observed that "once lost, natural and historic resources cannot be created." There is too much to lose with the connector.
