The widening of Manchester Street has begun – or at least preparations have begun. Commuters along College and Manchester streets caught a glimpse Tuesday of the ‘old pool hall’ on the corner of Manchester and College streets being torn down. Next will be the old RL Gambrel furniture store directly in front and facing Main Street.


The demolition is in preparation for the Kentucky State Highway Department to come in and begin widening Manchester Street. Plans for the road construction include turning lanes, curve improvements, sidewalk construction and a storm sewer system.
