DAWSON SPRINGS, Ky. (6/11/13) – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) has scheduled a public meeting for Thursday, June 20 to discuss the widening of U.S. 62/Arcadia Avenue in Dawson Springs. The meeting will take place 5-7 p.m. CDT, in the multi-purpose room of Dawson Springs High School, 317 Eli St.
KYTC engineers will be available to share preliminary design plans and seek public input on the project that runs along U.S. 62 between Sycamore Street and Parkwood Drive in Dawson Springs. The planned project includes adding sidewalks and a middle turn lane to improve safety and traffic flow.
“This will be an informal ‘come and go’ meeting for folks to share their thoughts about the project,” KYTC District 2 Project Development Engineer John Rudd said. “We urge anyone with an interest in this project to drop by.”
A handout and comment sheet/questionnaire will be provided. Displays illustrating the range of alignments and alternative scenarios studied for reconstruction of this section of U.S. 62 will be available.
The materials presented at the public meeting will also be available for review at the KYTC District 2 Office, 1840 N. Main St., Madisonville, KY 42431, for two weeks. Comments may be submitted in writing to the office before July 5, 2013. District Office business hours are 7 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
This meeting was originally scheduled in April, but was cancelled due to severe weather.
