The state’s 2014 – 2016 road plan preserves funding for the LBL bridge projects as well as the U.S. 68/Ky. 80 widening projects.

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Spokesman Keith Todd said work on the road plan – formally called the “Biennial Highway Construction Plan” – is a year-long process. Counties, area development districts, KyTC officials, the Governor and others make recommendations, and the legislature looks at those recommendations.

Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear (D) had nothing but good things to say about House Bill 237.

“I thank the General Assembly for passing the transportation budget and six-year road plan on time, without requiring a costly and unnecessary special session,” said Beshear. “Our state’s economy depends on a reliable, safe and well-maintained transportation network, and the timely passage of these bills is good news for our workers, businesses and taxpayers.”
