Mary Buckelew Parkway
Mary Buckelew Parkway is a 2.7 mile 2-lane road in unincorporated Mount Olive in northern Jefferson County which connects U. S. Highway 31 to Interstate 65's exit 275 and to Mount Olive Road near the Mount Olive Landfill. The road, opened in 1995, was named after then-Jefferson County Commissioner Mary Buckelew, who was instrumental in getting the funding to build the road.
In 2012, county commissioner Joe Knight announced plans to re-name the road, partially due to Buckelew's 2008 guilty plea to obstruction of justice charges, and in light of future planned development nearby for a new automobile dealership.
