ky trans 300CHRISTIAN COUNTY, Ky. (4/15/14) – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has scheduled a public informational meeting to discuss the alternative routes for a new Princeton Connector from Kentucky 91/Hopkinsville Road to Kentucky 293/Wilson Warehouse Road.

KYTC District 2 Chief Engineer Kevin McClearn said engineers and designers have applied information gleaned from an earlier meeting and are now seeking additional comments on the project aimed at reducing congestion through downtown Princeton.

“We encourage anyone who travels through downtown Princeton and property owners along the proposed route to come by to review exhibits and provide comments during our public meeting,” McClearn said. “Public input will help us to design this new roadway to benefit the traveling public.”

The meeting is scheduled for 5 - 7 p.m., CDT, Tuesday, April 22, 2014, at the Caldwell County Board of Education Building.

Displays illustrating the design will be available at that time. During the meeting, individuals will have the opportunity to discuss the project with the Department of Highways and American Engineers, Inc., representatives.

KYTC District 2 Project Development Engineer John Rudd said the project design staff is prepared to share two alternates.

“During our last public meeting we shared six options. We took the input provided by the public, applied it to those alternates, and narrowed it down to two alternates that will be presented during this meeting,” Rudd said. “We’ve also completed our environmental document that has provided us with some additional direction on this project. We plan to share all that information at the April 22 meeting and ask for additional input.”

A court stenographer will be available for those who desire to make oral statements and comment sheets will be distributed for written comments. Comments also may be submitted in writing before May 6, 2014, to John Rudd, Branch Manager Project Development, Department of Highways District 2 Office, 1840 N. Main St., Madisonville, Ky. 42431-5003.

Displays and materials presented at the Public Meeting also will be available at the District 2 Office in Madisonville during the same time period. Office Hours for the District 2 Office are Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Comments also can be provided at the time of visit.

All oral and written comments will become part of the official meeting record.

In compliance with Executive Order 12898, KYTC is seeking to engage low-income and minority populations that may be present in the project area.

This engagement would facilitate the identification of all potential impacts to these underserved populations and the development of a range of minimization and mitigation measures that would serve to offset potential effects.
