A group of Daviess County residents is formally organizing itself to oppose the possibility of an “outer loop” being built around Owensboro.

The members of Stop The Outer Loop has elected a president and are planning to form an official group to advocate against the possibility of the state Transportation Cabinet going forward with the loop beyond the feasibility study currently being conducted.

This is a great example of why Bowling Green has passed up Owensboro and it will not be long before Covington does as well. I have never seen the rural community have this much control and influence over a metropolitan area. It’s kind of impressive actually. No room for growth in this town. Sorry Owensboro, your glory days are gone with the wind.

Difficult to argue with Mr Smith.

If the need for an outer loop is real, it will become self evident and it will be built.
