Aerial view of the I-75 and I-64 interchange at North Broadway in October 1970. The interchange was controversial when it opened due to several fatal accidents which occurred when drivers attempted to access the interstate from North Broadway by the highway’s off-ramps, resulting in head-on collisions. As of early October 7 fatalities had occured in the previous four months. The state highway department made several changes in the interchange after meeting with a delegation of Fayette County officials. Interstates I-75 and I-64 intersected in this 8-mile stretch north of Lexington and was completed in the fall of 1970. Photo by John C. Wyatt | Staff
