100 Years of Transportation in Kentucky

​Established in 1912, the Kentucky Department of Public Roads had 14 employees, a $25,000 annual budget and advised county officials on road matters.

In 1982, what was then called the Department of Transportation became the Transportation Cabinet.  Now more than ever, our 5,000 employees are committed to providing a safe, efficient, environmentally sound and fiscally responsible transportation system that delivers economic opportunity and enhances the quality of life in Kentucky.

We hope you’ll visit this webpage throughout 2012 because new items of interest will be added regularly.

In this, our centennial year, we also invite you to join the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet in celebrating a century of service and our legacy of leadership.
