Kentucky Public Transportation Infrastructure Authority
The Kentucky Public Transportation Infrastructure Authority is an independent de jure municipal corporation and political subdivision of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. The Authority was established in 2009 by the Kentucky General Assembly with the passage of Kentucky Revised Statute (KRS) Chapter 175B to review, approve, and monitor certain significant transportation projects within the Commonwealth and between the Commonwealth and the State of Indiana and, if necessary, to assist with the operation, financing, and management of those projects.
The Authority currently has ten voting members; Chairman Greg Thomas, Vice Chair William M. Landrum III, Steve Austin, Charles Buddeke, Don Kelly, Dana Mayton, Harold McKinney, Glenn Mitchell, Michael Walker, and James Ward. The Authority is attached administratively to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) and relies exclusively on KYTC staff to operate. Currently, the Authority is engaged in overseeing a single project, the Louisville-Southern Indiana Ohio River Bridges (LSIORB) Project.
