This is looking west on KY 805. Years ago, US 23 turned to the left and US 119 continued straight. Prior to US 119's certification through West Virginia and Kentucky, this was the northern terminus of an old incarnation of US 123. When US 119 was relocated, old US 119 became KY 805 and US 23 continued to turn left to climb Pine Mountain to Payne Gap and then on up to Pound Gap and the Virginia state line. Temporarily in the 1990s, until the completion of the four-lane US 23 routing in Letcher and Pike counties, US 23/119's routing followed KY 805 a mile or so out to the four-lane.
