Overview

Description

This is a county road that is a leftover fragment of the now abandoned Kentucky Union Railway. It split off of the also abandoned Lexington-Big Sandy Railway at L&E Junction in eastern Clark County and passed through Powell, Wolfe, and Lee Counties before entering Breathitt and ending at Jackson. This was the same railway that passed through Walker Creek.
