Kentucky Transportation Cabinet continues to seek public input on 20-year plan

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet officials are asking Kentucky residents questions as they update the Kentucky Long Range Transportation Plan. The focus will be on maintaining and improving existing roadways, constructing new roads and issues concerning other modes of transportation.

In determining the transportation needs for all areas of Kentucky over the next two decades, the updated plan will consider changes in communities, freight movement, financial resources, economic development, rural and urban transportation, the environment and other transportation issues that are impacting you.

The new plan will be an overarching policy guide with goals, objectives and strategies to address the core transportation opportunities and challenges facing each of us.

“A strong transportation system is vital to a strong economy and key to maintaining a high quality of life for Kentucky residents and those who travel through the state,” Transportation Cabinet Secretary Mike Hancock said. “This long-range plan currently in the works is the perfect way to establish our transportation focus for the next two decades.

As part of the planning process, The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has designed and will widely distribute a confidential public survey to gauge the transportation expectations of all those who travel the state.

The “Your Turn” survey will run Jan. 9-Feb. 25. It consists of 19 questions concerning demographics, transportation needs and desires, and funding options. Your input will be used to plan for the future transportation system for you, your family and your community.
