Dyer Hill curve highway meeting tomorrow night

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is holding a public information meeting from 5 to 7 p.m., Wednesday at the American Legion Hall next to the Livingston County Middle School just east of Burna in regard to its plans to improve U.S. 60 in the Dyer Hill Curve area of Livingston County.  

According to KYTC spokesman Keith Todd, the scope of the original Dyer Hill construction project has been restructured using the agency’s “practical solutions” design process.

“The project as originally planned would have had to wait years for funding,” Todd said. “By applying a practical solutions design process we can address many of the safety issues identified during planning of the original project and get it to construction more quickly.  We’re inviting the public to come by, take a look at drawings and other exhibits, then provide comments on the plan that will help our design staff to refine it further.”

Todd urged anyone with an interest in the project to attend the meeting.

A handout and comment sheet/questionnaire will be provided. During the meeting, individuals will have the opportunity to view displays and discuss the project with Transportation Cabinet representatives. Oral comments and/or written comments may be made during the meeting.  Comments also may be submitted in writing before June 25, 2012 to the Department of Highways District 1 Office, 5501 Kentucky Dam Road, Paducah, KY 42003.
