FLORENCE, Ky. - There are now new names for the roads constructed as part of the South Airfield Road project.
The two and a half mile stretch of road from KY 18 Burlington Pike to KY 1017 Turfway Road will be named Aero Parkway.
The section of the project previously known as the Houston connector will be named Ted Bushelman Boulevard in memory of the late Florence city councilman.
“We were pleased to be involved with the Boone County Fiscal Court in choosing the name for the portion of the road connecting Houston Road to Aero Parkway. This road is a fitting tribute to a man who connected the CVG airport with the city of Florence for decades. Ted tirelessly served the people of our northern Kentucky community and having his name enshrined on this road is one small way we can say ‘Thank You’ to him,” said Mayor Diane Whalen.
The public is invited to inspect the road first-hand by biking, walking or running during the “Touch a Highway” event on Saturday, Sept. 29 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
The project will open to traffic in October.
An official ribbon cutting ceremony will be scheduled for later this fall with vehicular traffic beginning soon thereafter.
