The fork is by Bunch Road -- which should be named Brunch Road!

Largest Fork In The Road In Kentucky

The fork is worth a drive-by to enjoy the rural scenery of central Kentucky. The base is stamped with "2018," the year the high school class made the fork. It's definitely the largest fork in the road in Kentucky -- that makes it a must visit if you're trying to stick a fork in your Fork-In-The-Road list. It's a one-lane road in and out, so watch for oncoming traffic in the curves, and don't get off the pavement.

According to a story in the Franklin Favorite newspaper, the fork was erected in early May 2018, and built by the senior welding class of Franklin-Simpson High School. Made of stainless steel, it's 21 feet tall, weighs 680 pounds, and is anchored with a ton of concrete.

The welding teacher knew of the rural intersection and thought it would be funny to put a giant fork there, so that's what happened.

Large (probably about 20 feet tall), upright fork in the triangular grassy intersection of Uhls Road and Bunch Road. Very well made. Has a street number at the bottom of the handle. Located in rural Simpson County. Very impressive sight!
