This chapter narrative returns to North Limestone and follows the road north from Loudon Avenue, crossing New Circle Road, an unlimited access four-lane circumferential bypass constructed in 1953. The Kentucky Traction and Terminal Railroad provided interurban service to Paris by way of a track that paralleled North Limestone-Old Paris Pike. The road passes 1930s suburban houses and crosses I-75-I-64 before passing the site of a 1920s amusement park.
