Making Headlines:

Disappointing delay: The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) has delayed moving two-lane traffic to the new U.S. 68/KY 80 Eggners Ferry Bridge until sometime next week. Weather and a number of other factors combined to push the opening back several days.

Major detour: You are going to need an alternate route if you typically travel over the railroad crossing at the intersection of Route 61, Route 25 and Route 72/34 in Jackson, Mo. Starting Saturday night it will receive much needed improvements, meaning the intersection will close to traffic. 

Surprise visit: U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry made an unannounced stop in Baghdad on Friday to meet Iraq's prime minister and other top officials. The meeting comes during a time of increased military momentum against the Islamic State.
