Public Meeting, US 68 improvements, at Sulphur Well, KY

For U.S. 68 improvements in Metcalfe and Green Counties. Meeting scheduled for Tuesday, June 21 from 4pmCT to 6pmCT

By Chris Jessie, Public Information Officer
KY Transportation Cabinet, District 4, Elizabethtown, KY

BOWLING GREEN, KY. - A public meeting concerning improvements to U.S. 68 in Green and Metcalfe Counties has been scheduled for Tuesday, June 21, 2016, from 4pmCT to 6pmCT at the Sulphur Well Community Center at 51 Sulphur Well County Park Road, Edmonton, KY in Metcalfe County.

This meeting will present to the public the latest preliminary plans that have been developed for this project. A formal overview of the project information will be presented at 4:30pmCT. Handouts, containing information about the project, comment sheets and displays will be available at the meeting. Representatives from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will be available to answer questions. Both written and oral statements will be accepted at the meeting. Written statements will be accepted, and information made available, up to fifteen (15) days after the meeting at the Kentucky Department of Highways District Three Office at 900 Morgantown Road in Bowling Green.

The purpose of this project is to provide a safer, more effective connection between Greensburg and the Louie B. Nunn Cumberland Parkway by improving substandard geometrics along the corridor. The existing alignment is characterized by horizontal and vertical curvature that does not satisfy current geometric design guidelines. With the new interchange constructed at the Louie B Nunn Cumberland Parkway, the demand for travel along the U.S. 68 corridor is expected to increase. Addressing the substandard geometrics will extend previously implemented improvements along U.S. 68 and provide a better connection to the parkway.
