Work Widening US 27 Two-Thirds Complete

Nearly four years after state and local officials broke ground on the project in September 2007, work continues on the widening of a 5-mile section of U.S. 27 in northern Garrard County. Heavy equipment rumbles near Bryantsville as the two-lane road is widened to four lanes from Rocky Top to just south of Ky. 34. Construction costs amount to about $39 million of the $56 million project.
