  • Fall is near and the season brings along fewer hours of daylight, but high numbers of cyclists and pedestrians will continue to be out and about on Kentucky roadways. Be sure to prioritize your visibility since more motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians will be out and about. Cyclists should always utilize two lights; a white/yellow light mounted to the handlebars, facing forward, and a red light mounted to the seat post, facing rearward. Pedestrians should wear high-visibility clothing while walkin​​g during evening and nighttime hours. Be seen, be safe! When commuting by bicycle, it is essential to have the proper safety gear - most notably a proper-fitting helmet.
  • KYTC is now offering training workshops for Complete Streets in 2023! Session details and registration links are available on the Complete Streets Webpage
  • The 2023 KBBC Annual Meeting will be held in Lexington; dates and venue are yet to be determi​ned. More inf​ormaiton is available on the KBBC Webpage including minutes and agendas from previous meetings. 
  • KYTC has adopted the Safe System Approach to address roadway safety. One of the objectives of the Safe System Approach is promoting safer speeds in all roadway environments though a combination of thoughtful roadway design, appropriate speed limit setting, targeted education, outreach campaigns, and enforcement. According to the NHTSA, a speed limit reduction from 30 mph to 25 mph “potentially halves the fatality risk for a struck pedestrian." The relationship between vehicle speed and crash severity is unequivocal and based on the laws of physics. KYTC supports a policy to help achieve a maximum road travel speed of 20 miles per hour in areas where vulnerable road users and vehicles mix in a frequent and planned manner, except where strong evidence exists that higher speeds are safe.
  • KYTC's new Complete Streets, Roads, and Highways Manual is now complete and is available for the public to view and download. This manual will replace KYTC's prior Bicycle and Pedestrian Policy from 2002. Check out the new Complete Streets Webpage to view or download the new Complete Streets Manual as well as the newly adopted Complete Streets Policy!  
  • KYTC recently completed Kentucky's first Statewide Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. Please visit our Bicycle and Pedestrian Plans Webpage to view and download the full report as well as the appendicies!
