LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – In Lexington, traveling on Nicholasville Road can be scary for some.

There are multiple lanes, and it’s almost always congested with traffic.

Now, transportation and land use planners are studying the road from downtown Lexington to Brannon Crossing, just south of the Fayette-Jessamine county line.

Next month, city officials are inviting the public to a meeting to help make Nicholasville Road better.

The city is hosting a public open house to share project information with the community, answer questions and gather feedback and ideas.

The open house is Wednesday, March 4, in the community room at Lexington Green, from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
