New US 641 Now Open in Southern Crittenden County
By West Kentucky Star Staff
CRITTENDEN COUNTY - A section of New US 641 between Fredonia and Marionin southern Crittenden County is now open to 2-lane traffic.

The existing roadway that now becomes KY 91 is also open after the contractor completed paving of connecting points.

On Thursday, Crittenden County Judge-Executive Perry Newcom and Caldwell County Judge-Executive Ellen Dunning met near the Crittenden-Caldwell county line to ceremonially remove one of the Road Closed signs along the new route.

Motorists who travel county roads that cross the new highway are reminded they will now be facing 55 mile per hour cross traffic at the 5 intersections along New US 641.  

Traffic at the north and south connecting points will be on base courses of asphalt through the winter months. The contractor will return in the spring to apply a final driving surface.

The 5.5-mile project is the first step in the reconstruction of US 641 from Marion to Eddyville. The improved road will provide Crittenden County industries a viable truck route to reach I-69 and I-24 near Eddyville.
