End is near
There's still no direct access to Hwy. 65 from Cemetery Road, but a nearly finished roundabout is now allowing north/south highway traffic to flow around it. Nearly 3 1/2 months of highway reconstruction -- starting on March 29 -- should all wind down in about a week.
The project involved tearing up and repaving a four-mile stretch of Hwy. 35 beginning on the north end by County Road U and extending south to the new multi-lane roundabout at Hwy. 65 and Cemetery Road.
