Road Still Closed

By Gene Birk | 

Dallas Jones wants Beech Bend Road open to allow tractor-trailers to enter his race track. Matt Baker owns land the road is on and wants the road closed.

He submitted a proposal to Warren Fiscal Court to allow Jones to use the road for six races this year and six races next year, while the state improves the road to the main entrance of "Beech Bend Park."

But Jones dislikes the proposal, saying he wants to keep two entrances to "Beech Bend Park" for future expansion, not just improve the main entrance. He's hoping the Kentucky Court Of Appeals rules "Beech Bend Road" is a county road.

Baker says he will withdraw his lawsuit against the fiscal court, if the fiscal court rescinds its eminent domain suit. The magistrates voted 6-0 to do just that.
