Announcements

  • Fall has arrived in the Bluegrass State and consequently there are now fewer hours of daylight, so prioritizing your visibility to motorists is of the utmost importance. Cyclists should always utilize two lights; a white/yellow light mounted to the handlebars, facing forward, and a red light mounted to the seat post, facing rearward. Be seen, be safe! The Fall season is a great time to try walking or biking to work or school with the pleasent, mild temperatures and consistent sunshine. When commuting by bicycle, be sure to have the proper safety gear - most notably a proper-fitting helmet.
  • The 2022 KBBC Annual Meeting was held on October 6th and 7th in Calvert City. Details are available on the KBBC Webpage including the Annual Meeting Minutes, which contains the Paula Nye Grant recipients for 2022.  
  • KYTC's new Complete Streets, Roads, and Highways Manual is now complete and is available for the public to view and download. This manual will replace KYTC's prior Bicycle and Pedestrian Policy from 2002. Check out the new Complete Streets Webpage to view or download the new Complete Streets Manual as well as the newly adopted Complete Streets Policy!  
  • KYTC recently completed Kentucky's first Statewide Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. Please visit our Bicycle and Pedestrian Plans Webpage to view and download the full report as well as the appendicies!
