The U.S. Forest Service is reevaluating the statuses of some of the roads in Land Between the Lakes, and heard from between 40 and 60 local officials and residents last Tuesday evening at the Lake Barkley State Resort Park Convention Center.

“We thought the meeting went really well,” said Jan Bush, media contact for Land Between the Lakes.

There are about 65 miles out of 475 miles worth of roads in LBL that do not have a legal mandate and can be considered for future changes, said Bush. She noted that any roads that access a cemetery or are maintained by either Kentucky or Tennessee cannot be changed.

Those present wanted to know what the process is and what, if any, specific roads would be closed. Trigg County Judge Executive Hollis Alexander, one of the officials there, also thought the meeting went well, noting that there were some varied emotions about possible road closures.
