Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear, along with transportation cabinet officials and local leaders, ceremonially broke ground Wednesday on the new $128.3 million bridge at Lake Barkley - the second of the new four-lane bridges leading into Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area.
University of Kentucky archaeologists are finishing their dig at a prehistoric Native American campsite on the edge of Lake Barkley in Canton. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet found the site during land analysis for a new bridge.
Lead Archaeologist Mickey Loughlin said this site ranks high in importance on a 1-10 scale.
