The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is in the process of buying up right-of-ways along U.S. 68/Ky. 80 near Lake Barkley in preparation for the widening project, said KyTC Spokesman Keith Todd.

When all the widening is complete, U.S. 68/Ky. 80 through Trigg County will be four lanes instead of two. Currently, there are only a couple of spots that are still only two lanes. However, at least two businesses in that area will have to relocate as a result.

Carolyn Brown of Timber’s Steak & Grill gave a date of Saturday, Dec. 21, as the last day they will be in business at their current location on Canton Road. “We’re looking to relocate within Trigg County, if possible,” she said. “There are three possible places we’re looking at, but we haven’t made a decision yet.”

Timber’s sits on top of a hill just off of U.S. 68/Ky. 80. However, it only has one entrance from 68/80. And if it were to stay in business, its entrance would no longer be off the main highway, and reconstruction of a new driveway would be required, said Brown.
