Public meeting Tuesday in study of highway needs in Ashland-Boyd-Greenup urban area
Open house Jan. 28, 5-7, at Ashland City Building


FLEMINGSBURG, Ky. (Jan. 24, 2020) – The last public meeting for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet's study of highway needs in the Ashland-Boyd-Greenup urban area of northeast Kentucky will take place Tuesday in downtown Ashland.

Anyone may drop by the Ashland City Building on Tuesday, Jan. 28, 5-7 p.m. to let the Transportation Cabinet know what transportation improvements are needed in the urban area – that is, roadways in a 50-square-mile area that includes the US 23 corridor between Catlettsburg, Ashland, and Greenup and along the US 60 corridor between Ashland and Cannonsburg in Boyd County.

The information will become a part of the Boyd-Greenup County Small Urban Area Study being undertaken by consultant engineering firm QK4, Inc.

The study will use engineering analysis and traffic data – both now and projected to 2050 – as well as the public input to develop possible highway improvements that focus on safety and traffic congestion issues.

The public meeting will follow an "open house" format where anyone may drop in between 5 and 7 p.m. to talk to engineers, learn more about the study, and offer ideas on how to improve area transportation. The public may share information using maps, computers, and other means provided at the meeting.

For those who cannot attend, a public involvement website is available online now. Simply follow this shortened link – – and share information on the electronic map.

More information and a map link can also be found online via Kentucky Department of Highways District 9 at or on the KYOVA Interstate Planning Commission's site at
