In Central Kentucky, there are many lakes, rolling hills and a large skilled workforce. One thing that is
holding the area back though, is the lack of easy access to the state's parkway and interstate system.
The Heartland Parkway is a proposed roadway that will run through four counties, beginning in Columbia/Adair
County at the Louie B. Nunn Cumberland Parkway and going north through Campbellsville/Taylor County,
Lebanon/Marion County and connecting with the Martha Lane Collins Bluegrass Parkway in Springfield/Washington
The Heartland Parkway will pass by historical sites, tourist destinations and three colleges/universities.
It will affect not only those who live in Adair, Taylor, Marion and Washington counties, but also those in
surrounding counties. The Heartland Parkway will become a major north-south corridor for the flow
of goods in and out of the region and will serve as the major gateway to the Green River Lake tourism
