What's news this week in Crittenden County...

Local leaders are guardedly optimistic about getting the new U.S. 641 highway completed in the next few years, following the release last week of Gov. Matt Bevin’s new Six-Year Highway Plan. There is also reason to believe the road in Crittenden County, at least, will be a four-lane highway as originally proposed.
