The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) is seeking public input for an ongoing study of the KY 69 Corridor in southern Hancock County. The agency has scheduled a public information meeting at the South Hancock Elementary School in Hawesville on Tuesday, October 20th, 2015, to provide information and accept comments.
According to KYTC Planning Section Supervisor Nick Hall, the meeting will include two presentations to explain the corridor study and safety improvements it seeks to identify.
“This KY 69 Corridor study examines the need for and types of improvements necessary along KY 69 between the Hancock-Ohio County Line and U.S. 60 at Hawesville. KYTC personnel will use input provided at the meeting to evaluate potential safety projects that could be funded in the future. We’re urging anyone who travels this corridor or lives along the corridor to attend the public meeting on October 20th,” Hall said.
In addition to the presentations, handouts will be provided containing information about the study and proposed conceptual improvements. Displays will be available for review. Representatives from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, as well as consultants, will be available from 5 p.m., CDT, to 7 p.m., to answer questions and accept input.
“This section of KY 69 carries about 2,200 vehicles a day on the Hawesville end. This corridor provides an important connection through southern Hancock County to Oho County. While there is no funding at this time for project proposals that come out of the study, this will help identify potential safety projects that might be available for funding in the future. This is the start of that process,” Hall said.
While Hall encouraged interested citizens to attend the public meeting, he indicated that anyone who is unable to attend my submit comments by mail. Written comments will be accepted during the meeting and for up to 15 days after the meeting at the KYTC District 2 Office at 1840 N. Main Street, Madisonville, KY 42431. Interested citizens will also be able to review displays shared at the public meeting by stopping by the District 2 offices during the 15-day comment period.
Doors will be open from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m., CDT, as KYTC engineers and consultants provide information and gather feedback from the public.
