Public comment sought for Kentucky transportation plan

March 21, 2019

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky transportation officials are seeking public comment on a long-term transportation plan that’s under consideration for Fayette and Jessamine counties.

A statement from the Lexington transportation officials says the plan will guide how federal dollars are spent on road projects over the next 26 years.

Kenzie Gleason with the Lexington Area Metropolitan Planning Organization says everyone who lives or travels in Fayette and Jessamine counties is affected by transportation so getting their input is vital in the planning process.

An open house for the public to view the proposed plan will be held March 26 at the Lexington Public Library’s Tates Creek Branch. The draft plan also will be available online through April 13 for people to view and leave comments.

The plan is set for a vote on April 24.
