The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet's DRAFT FY 2021-2024 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) is a "big picture" look at multi-modal statewide transportation planning over four years. It contains all the federally-funded scheduled projects in the 2020 Enacted Highway Plan approved by the 2020 Kentucky General Assembly and signed by the Governor. It includes a reference to projects from Kentucky's nine Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs). MPOs represent the following urbanized areas: Bowling Green, Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky, Clarksville-Oak Grove, Evansville-Henderson, Huntington-Ashland-Ironton, Lexington, Louisville, Owensboro, and Radcliff-Elizabethtown. A project located within these metropolitan planning areas must be included in the appropriate MPO's TIP before it can be included in the STIP and before funding can be authorized. You can visit the MPO's website here to see their current TIP.
A 30-day public comment period will run from Monday, May 10 to Thursday, June 8. Comments can be sent to Selena.Curry@KY.GOV or mailed. Mail can be addressed to James Ballinger, Department of Highways, 200 Mero Street, 6th floor, Frankfort, KY 40622. The same contact information can be used to request a hard copy of the draft STIP by mail as district offices are currently closed to the public due to COVID-19.
