New Subdivision Depends on the Reconstruction of KY 237
Posted: 7-Feb-2005 2:04AM CST
Topics: [Boone County] [KY 237]

The Boone County Planning Commission zone change committee recently recommended the approval of a zone change that would allow a developer to construct a 112-home subdivision; however, the committee added a change to the proposal that prohibits the developer from constructing a single home until the state reconstructs KY 237. That reconstruction is in the planning stages now, and construction on the project is planned to begin in 2008 at the earliest.

Area residents protested the zoning change fearing that the new subdivision would more traffic to the already congested KY 237. One area resident, Matt Anderson, established a website against the zoning change at www.237safety.com [Outside Link].

No Projects Cut from Six Year Road Plan, but Some Are Delayed
Posted: 20-Feb-2004 7:35AM CST
Topics: Topic listing supressed. [38 topics related to this item]

Transportation Cabinet Secretary Bailey told state legislators on Wednesday that no projects were cut from this year's version of the Six Year Highway plan; however, some projects have delayed due to the states budget problems.

The list of projects is too long to list here; however, some notable projects are listed below.

  • $118 million for the Louisville-Southern Indiana Bridges Project. Some of this money will be raised by selling bonds that would be repaid when promised federal funding is allocated for the project.
  • $78 million for reconstruction of the Owensboro bypass to the east of its current alignment. This is meant to improve access to the William H. Natcher Bridge.
  • Widening of I-64 from Louisville to Shelbyville.
  • Widening of I-65 from the Tennessee State Line to Bowling Green.
  • Widening of I-75 in Scott and Grant counties.
  • Southern extensions of both the Breathitt Pennyrile Parkway and the William H. Natcher Parwkay.

A notable absence from the list is funding for replacing the I-71/I-75 Brent Spence Bridge over the Ohio River; however, the project remains on the unscheduled needs list and officials claim that it is still a priority. Construction on the project is still over a decade away.

This year the transportation cabinet has split the list into projects that will receive federal funding and projects that will not receive federal funding. Projects that will be funded only by the state are expected to be delayed and will be prioritized by need.

Update (Feb. 29, 2004): More information about projects in particular areas can be found here.

Northern Kentucky Leaders Express Support for Gambling to Raise Tax Revenues; Gas Tax Increase Also Supported
Posted: 23-Jul-2003 7:28PM CDT

The Judge Executives of Boone, Kenton, and Campbell County expressed support for casino gambling during the 14th Annual State of Northern Kentucky Addresses yesterday. The Judge Executives also expressed some support for increasing the state's gas tax. The leaders are concerned about the dwindling tax revenue being collected by Frankfort and are afraid that services will be cut if new revenue is not found. A proposed expansion of KY 237 in Hebron is named as an example of a project that is in jeopardy if new funding cannot be found.
