     The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is holding a public meeting on Tuesday to go over the latest proposals for the I-75 Connector.

     The meeting will be held at White Hall Elementary School in Richmond from 5pm to 8pm.

     A similar meeting was held in Jessamine County on Thursday and drew more than 270 people.

    The road would connect Highway 27 in Nicholasville to I-75 in Richmond.

    Not everyone in the corridor where the proposed road would be is in favor of the project.

    A group calling themselves the I-75 disconnectors say the road is unnecessary and would only hurt the ecosystem and more than 400 historic sites in the 13-mile long corridor.

    They say the eventual commercial and residential development along the road would do nothing to save time.
