Kentucky 2015 Freight Conference

On behalf of the KY Transportation Cabinet and Federal Highways – KY Division, we want to thank you for attending the KY Freight Workshop last Thursday here at KYTC in Frankfort. 
 
In order to achieve the primary goal of this workshop, we distributed 3 surveys during the afternoon session.  These surveys sought input regarding our freight system’s performance, inventory, and the development of a state freight advisory committee.  Below are copies of the surveys for your convenience but also so that you could quickly and easily share with your freight contacts. 
 
We cannot express how important this effort is in our efforts to hear from the locals and the users of the freight system.  This is a very effective way for you to communicate your comments, concerns, ideas, etc. to your state transportation officials.  We have specific questions but are just as interested in your questions and your answers to things that were not discussed, whether in the survey or at the workshop. 
 
All feedback can be sent via email, by post mail, or phone call.  Your comments are always welcome, but in order to keep this effort fresh and prolong this momentum, we ask that you have all feedback to us by COB Friday, June 12th.  Submit comments to Casey.Wells@ky.gov or to the following address:
