The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has released a list of 70 projects rated as the top highway projects for the next highway plan, which includes 6 projects in District Eight, Somerset, KY.
All six of the District Six projects are in Pulaski County.

The district includes Adair, Casey, Clinton, Cumberland, Lincoln, McCreary, (Pulaski), Rockcastle, Russell, and Wayne counties. The Transportation Cabinet said the list was developed using "a data-driven list of statewide transportation projects that will help guide development of the next Highway Plan." The plan comes with a new acronym and logo. It's called "SHIFT" for "Strategic Highway Investment Formula for Tomorrow."
The seventy projects are considered of statewide importance. The largest ones, several over $1.5 billion are in the Greater Cincinnati area.
A cursory look at the list does indicate a few projects which would affect Adair, Russell and Metcalfe Counties more directly. They are related to the "I-66" project, first announced in the Fletcher Adinistration, when signs were unveiled along the LBN/Cumberland Parkway, in 2007, announcing "Future Corridor, I-66."

SHIFT projects also include: Safety improvements, road widening, reconstruction, new interchanges, and new routes.
Projects outside of SHIFT include Rural and Municipal Aid, MPO Projects, other Federally Dedicate Projects (safety, bike/pedestrian, congestion, etc), maintenance pojects (pavement, bridges, etc.), and major infrastructure projects (federally significant projects.)
