Beautify I-65 project is a finalist for Beautify the Bluegrass Award

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.-Operation Pride is a finalist for the Beautify the Bluegrass award by Kentucky Living! 

Operation Pride, or the Beautify I-65 project, is transforming five interstate-65 interchanges to raise awareness in the community, attract visitors and boost economic development. 

The project includes planting trees and flowers, installing black wood fencing plus gateway exits with attractive signage and colorful flags. 

Operation Pride has been working to beautify the community for three years now. 

“It’s such an honor because we didn’t seek nominations or publicity or anything and to see the public appreciate what is being done and the impact to the area…one thing I can say for all of our people is we are so proud of Bowling Green,” said Operation PRIDE Executive Director Melanie Lawrence.
