Area residents invited to attend public meeting on improvements to KY 15 in Perry County
JACKSON, KY – Residents of Perry County are invited to attend a public informational meeting to view and discuss right of way plans on a proposed project to improve KY 15 north of Hazard.
The meeting will be held Thursday, May 22, from 5-7 p.m. at the Perry County Central High School cafeteria. It will be an “open house” format meeting with no formal presentation.
Representatives from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet and project consultants will be available to answer questions and provide information about the project. Plans showing the affected area and the properties to be impacted by the project will be on display. Personnel will be available to answer questions concerning the right-of-way acquisition process. No purchase offers will be made during this meeting.
A project is under consideration to widen KY 15 between Morton Boulevard and Lower Second Creek Road. The project would result in a safer route that would be designed to meet current and future traffic demands. 
Persons with disabilities who wish to attend the meeting but have special accessibility needs that require assistance should contact the project manager, Darren Back, at (606) 666-8841 to request special assistance.
