Texas trip
Jan. 1-4, 2010
Day 4 (Western to Central Kentucky)

These photos are from my trip to the Dallas-Fort Worth area in January 2010. These photos are from Day 4 of the trip and are from Kentucky, starting in the western part of the state and working toward the central section. Thumbnails for the 209 photos span four pages. Use the arrow buttons in the upper left corner of the page to navigate the thumbnail pages. To view the full-sized photos, click on one of the thumbnails on this page. You will then be able to view the images on individual Web pages.

On the final day of the trip, heading home, this is eastbound on I-24.

Heading east on US 62.

US 62 and US 641 have been relocated off Kentucky Dam onto a new bridge just downstream from the dam. This was done to allow for expansion of the locks. Pavement and signage is still evident on the dam, however.

The bridge crossing the Cumberland River downstream of Barkley Dam.

With the removal of KY 6239 signage in Letcher County, this once again is Kentucky's highest-numbered signed highway. The 6000-series is reserved for frontage routes and this one remains signed.

Heading east on the Western Kentucky Parkway.

US 431 has been routed out of downtown Central City because of a low-clearance railroad underpass. The route now follows US 62 west to KY 189 and reconnects with old US 431 north of town.

Back on the WK Parkway.

An old-style WK Parkway sign has been resurrected for this temporary detour sign.

Entering Hardin County and back into Eastern Time.

Rolling hills in western Hardin County.

Signage at the end of the US 31W Bypass at KY 1136, just south of the WK Parkway.

On KY 1136 east.

This sign assembly was made famous (or infamous) in a certain video on a certain Web site that will not be named here.

Now heading north on US 31W.
