A public meeting has been scheduled to discuss the upcoming Kentucky 56 Improvement Project, which aims to enhance safety, traffic flow, and the overall function of Kentucky 56, providing a more secure and dependable route for residential and commercial traffic traveling to and from Morganfield.
The Kentucky 56 Improvement Project encompasses a vital section of the road, connecting from U.S. 60 in downtown Morganfield through the Morganfield Bypass to Kentucky 141. The project involves paving curbs between the urban section from Morganfield to Morganfield Park and widening the road to two 11-foot lanes with 6-foot shoulders, which will also improve safety measures at the Kentucky 758 and Kentucky 141 intersections.
Kentucky Transportation Cabinet representatives will be available to share project details and address any questions or concerns attendees may have.
The meeting will take place from 4-6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 17 at the Union County High School, located at 4464 U.S. Highway 60 West in Morganfield, with a brief presentation at 6:15 p.m.
