Another wonders if it will take death for KY 55 N to be improved

Opinions are personal viewpoint of the writer
I agree! The passing lane coming up by Betty’s is very deceiving, especially for out of town drivers. It is marked as a passing lane, not a turning lane. Unfortunately due to the design of the road, many including myself are forced to use it as a turning lane while others are speeding up to use it as a passing lane. Living in Cane Calley and working right off of 55, I must drive this road and turn from the passing lane daily. A near miss myself several weeks ago, has me even more nervous about this particular area of 55. I personally feel this section would have benefited more from a turning lane rather than a passing lane and definitely lessened the risk of injuries. --Lynne Darnell
