The Transportation Cabinet received the funding to widen the stretch of New Circle between Georgetown and Versailles from 4 to 6 lanes.

This project will start Fall of 2013 and last roughly though the summer of 2016.

In addition to wider lanes, the Leestown intersection is scheduled for a double-crossover diamond, like the one at Harrodsburg Road.

Rob Sprague, with the Transportation Cabinet, said these changes will reduce accidents and improve traffic flow.

He also said that the KYTC will keep the public updated on traffic delays and any alternate routes to take.

A public meeting is scheduled for November 29th from 5-7pm at Leestown Middle School to answer any questions.
