The project's purpose is to address the poor geometry of the existing 5-legged intersection of KY 32 and KY 36, and to reconstruct the intersection and approaches as necessary to achieve adequate sight distance, safer and more efficient traffic flow, and better access for the school system and surrounding community.
The Transportation Cabinet has hired a consultant, Burgess & Niple, Inc., to join the Highway District 9 project team to help design the reconstruction. Over the past several months, the project team has discussed preliminary conceptual designs in order to narrow alternatives down to those that are cost effective and adequately meet the purpose and need. As a result, two alternatives have emerged to stand out as the most suitable. Those were presented to local officials and stakeholders in October in order to prepare project plans for the next step - a public meeting.
