As a reminder, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) has scheduled a public information meeting to seek input on improvements along U.S. 62 between KY 95 and Lone Valley Road in the Calvert City area of Marshall County.
The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 7, 2023, at the Calvert City Civic Center. It will be conducted in an open-house format from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. CST, allowing attendees to view a video and exhibits, talk to representatives, ask questions, and provide input on the project.
The meeting will give KYTC engineers a chance to receive public input on several proposals under consideration as they prepare for final design work on the project.
Handouts containing information about the project, comment sheets, and displays will be available during the public meeting. There will be no formal presentation, so attendees can drop in anytime during the meeting to review maps, renderings, and other displays. KYTC representatives will be available to answer questions and accept written or oral comments.
The project runs from the intersection of U.S. 62 and KY 95/Main Street in Calvert City (U.S. 62 mile point 7.2) eastward to Lone Valley Road at mile point 8.497, a distance of 1.29 miles. It includes the U.S. 62 intersection with KY 1523/Oak Park Boulevard, along with several other streets and roads. Just over 9,000 vehicles travel this section of U.S. 62 in an average day. A survey of police crash data indicates nearly 40 crashes along the project area over the last three years.
Following the public meeting, project displays, and other materials will be available at the District 1 Office in Paducah. Office Hours are Monday-Friday, 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. CST. Comments will be accepted at the District 1 Office until March 10, 2023. Comments also may be submitted by mail before that date to Chris Kuntz, Branch Manager Project Development, KYTC District 1 Office, 5501 Kentucky Dam Rd., Paducah, KY 42003.
All written comments will become part of the official meeting record. Once compiled, the meeting record and supporting documentation will be made available for review and copying after an Open Records request has been received and approved. Open Records requests must be submitted to the Transportation Cabinet, Office of Legal Services, Transportation Office Building, 200 Mero St., Frankfort, KY 40622, or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
