U.S. Route 41 in the state of Kentucky (US 41) is a north-south United States Numbered Highway that mainly goes through the western part of the state.

Route description

US 41 enters the state in Guthrie, Kentucky, and begins northwest to traverse the towns of Trenton and Pembroke before reaching Hopkinsville. US 41 turns northward from downtown Hopkinsville to Crofton, Nortonville, and Madisonville, in Hopkins County. US 41 then continues into eastern Webster before reaching the city of Henderson.

History

Between 1926 and 1930, US 41 followed a more westerly route between Hopkinsville and Nashville, following the current US 41 Alt., while the current US 41 alignment was US 241. [3] From 1930 into the early 1940s, the current alignment of US 41 was signed as US 41E, and the US 41W designation was on the current alignment of US 41 Alt. south of Hopkinsville. [4] The western route became US 41 Alt. in 1943, while US 41E became the current alignment of US 41. [5]

In Hopkins County, US 41 previously followed the Pennyrile Parkway between exits 30 and 45 until the early 1990s, when it was rerouted onto the former US 41 Alt. alignment from Madisonville to just south of Nortonville. This was the one area of the Pennyrile Parkway where tolls were not charged when the parkway was originally a toll road.[ citation needed]

Near Henderson, US 41 was rerouted onto the few remaining miles of the Pennyrile Parkway up to its northern terminus in the 2010s before I-69 was designated onto most of the parkway to Nortonville.[ citation needed]
