The SPCA, made up of Trigg, Christian and Todd counties, calls itself a “strategic advocacy alliance” that works with the state government on behalf of the three counties in the Southern Pennryile region.
A bill the SPCA advocated for starting in 2011 – raising the speed limit on U.S. 68/Ky. 80 across the three counties from 55 to 65 miles per hour – became law late last year. SPCA officials said at the time that raising the speed limit would be helpful to long-term commuter patterns and would encourage people to use the corridor instead of driving around it.
The group has also lobbied to make sure the two replacement four-lane bridges across Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake stay on the state’s six-year road plan.
