Historic fences saved in remodeling of Paris Pike are crumbling

The state went to a lot of effort to preserve, move and protect rock fences as part of a nearly $7.5 million-per-mile Paris Pike renovation especially designed to blend into, rather than consume, the landscape. At $93 million, the Paris Pike makeover was one of the most expensive road projects of its time and kind when it opened in 2003. Eleven years later, significant chunks of the fences have crumbled, and there isn't money set aside for repairs.
