The island is GONE

An SUV prepares to makes a right turn Tuesday morning from South 12th Street onto Sycamore Street on Murray’s south side as work continues at a traffic safety project of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. The fact that a right turn is happening at the intersection itself is something that has not happened since possibly as far back as the 1940s as a traffic island had been in place, creating a diagonal right turn that merged onto Sycamore. That island has been eliminated and will soon be replanted with green space, the KYTC said.
