Next Tuesday, January 17th, Route 29 will officially have its ribbon cutting ceremony. The Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce has been setting everything up making sure politicians and press will be able to be there for the official ceremony. Patty Hornbuckle CEO of the Taylorville Chamber said she's excited to get everything together and make this a big event, but she's not thrilled with the location of the ribbon cutting.
Hornbuckle said since the new road opened, it's made it easier for people to travel to Springfield. But even more importantly, it's made it easier for people from Springfield to come to Taylorville.
