The Paris-Lexington Road: Community-Based Planning and Context Sensitive Highway Design

This book describes the reconstruction of the Paris-Lexington Road, which is located in Kentucky. This road, originally called the Paris Pike, is a scenic byway with a complex history. In 1969 the state of Kentucky wanted to widen the road in order to increase capacity and improve highway safety. There were a number of objections to the road widening project, and in 1979 a federal court injunction prevented the project from going forth, for fifteen years. The book addresses the reconstruction history of the Paris-Lexington Road, and examines the role of landscape architects in context sensitive design.
