Six Year Plan
Every two years, the Kentucky General Assembly approves a Six-Year Highway Plan (6YP).   This plan is subject to the availability of state and federal highway dollars.  On an on-going basis, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) works with the Area Development Districts (ADDs), Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) and Highway District Offices to identify and prioritize projects for future 6YPs.  KYTC submits the recommended​ plan to the Legislature which then reviews, modifies, and approves the plan as part of the biennial budget process.

Metropolitan Planning
Federal transportation legislation requires that a Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) be designated for each urban area with a population of more than 50,000 people in order to carry out the metropolitan transportation planning process. Each urban area with a population greater then 200,000 is designated as a Transportation Management Area (TMA.)​
