The lack of a definitive route around Fredonia has been a major stumbling block in the effort to complete the new U.S. 641 highway between Marion and Interstate 24. Work on the project has been effectively scuttled the last couple of years due to ongoing debate and the lack of a resolution with regard to how to get around Fredonia. There has been both support and opposition to a variety of proposed routes, and what exists now is a political stalemate. (Click here for 72 news photos related to the U.S. 641 relocation project.)
