The Associated Press


FRANKFORT, Ky. — A proposed update to Kentucky's long-range transportation plan is available for public review.

The draft updates the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet's 2006 long-range plan and was developed with help from more than 16,000 public survey responses.

The cabinet says the draft plan's goals include more emphasis on longer-lasting investments, use of emerging technologies to improve operation, responsiveness to needs of a growing population and its demographics, steadily increasing highway safety and innovation in raising revenues.

The proposal can be found at http://yourturn.transportation.ky.gov/ , and comments may be made in a survey available at the same site through June 23. Hard copies of the draft plan and survey are also available at Highway District offices, Area Development District offices, Metropolitan Planning Organization offices and the cabinet office building in Frankfort.
