Announcements

  • Pedestrian and bicyclist fatalities have steadily been on the rise in Kentucky over the last five years; see the latest statistics in the table above. Motorists are not always to blame for incidents involving pedestrians and cyclists - be attententive to your surroundings and make yourself easily visible while walking or biking on or near roadways. Be sure to wear a proper-fitting helmet while cycling as well.
  • KYTC is pleased to announce that a new safety measure has been approved by Federal Highways Administration (FHWA) to now use green-colored pavement for marked bicycle lanes and bicycle lane extensions in the commonwealth for all roadways. The green-colored pavement helps make motorists more aware of the presence of the bicycle facility on the roadway.
  • The widely popular Complete Streets Workshops from last year have returned in 2024. For dates, locations, and registration information, please visit the Complete Streets Webpage.
  • Bicycle friendly communities and businesses can apply ​for recognition of this feat with the League of American Bicyclists. Click on the application link if your community or busniess is interested ​in this recognition. Deadlines are coming up in June.
