The Long-Range Statewide Transportation Plan is a 25-year multimodal
plan for Kentucky’s transportation system produced by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet and required through the
federal transportation reauthorization acts, ISTEA in 1991 and TEA-21 in 1998 and SAFETEA-LU in 2005. Federal legislation
required the states to produce the first Statewide Transportation Plan by 1995 and to update the document periodically.
Kentucky produced their first Statewide Transportation Plan (STP) in January 1995, the first update in December 1999, and the
current update was produced in 2006. The first two plans were both policy and project plans, however, the current 25-year Plan
is a policy-only plan that identifies a vision and set of goals developed through outreach and consultation, transportation
needs, available resources and the transportation strategies which will be utilized to most efficiently serve the mobility,
safety and economic needs of the people.
On February 14, 2007, the Federal Final Rule on revising the regulations
required by the passage of the SAFETEA-LU federal transportation legislation, which governed the state transportation plans,
was published. Kentucky had completed the public review and comment period for the 2006 Updated STP in November of
2006. Therefore, Kentucky has produced Amendment #1 to the 2006 Long-Range Statewide Transportation
Plan to specifically address any additional requirements in the federal regulations.
