Eddyville to Fredonia

The U.S. 641 project, from Eddyville to Fredonia, aims to better connect the region and improve safety and mobility. The proposed expansion would connect with a recently completed U.S. 641 improvement project between Fredonia and Marion and extend the corridor improvements to Eddyville, near the Interstate 69/U.S. 62 interchange.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has identified a Preliminary Preferred alignment that was shared during a public information meeting in Fredonia on August 27, 2019. Primary factors used in the development of the Preliminary Preferred Alternative included:

  • Safety
  • Limiting impacts to farms, homes, businesses and private properties
  • Addressing current and long-term transportation needs in the region
  • Maximizing use of public property
  • Keeping project within budget/minimizing cost escalations
  • Limiting impacts on the environment
  • Avoiding further delays


Public meeting documents and Feedback

KYTC will be accepting comments and feedback about the Preliminary Preferred Alternate until September 27, 2019. There following are materials distributed during the public meeting:
