Public input sought on improvements between Danville and Lancaster

DANVILLE/LANCASTER, Ky. (WTVQ) – Public input is needed to help the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet identify transportation concerns on the KY 52 corridor between Danville and Lancaster.

KYTC initiated a study of the corridor with consultant engineering firm Qk4, Inc. in August 2020. The team has been working to identify existing conditions and wants to hear from you on your safety and traffic concerns within the study area.

Public input is essential to identify the needs of roadway users on a local and regional level.

Area residents are asked to help by filling out a short survey available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/96RYKHY which concludes with an opportunity to place points on an online mapping portal to enter location-specific data about existing traffic and safety concerns.

The study will use engineering and traffic data – both now and projected to 2045 – and public input to help develop possible short- and long-term highway improvements for the narrow, two-lane highway.

Another round of public involvement during Spring 2021 will collect your input on any proposed improvements. Other than small-scale safety fixes, no future funding has been identified to implement any study recommendations.

Complete the survey by January 15, 2021. For additional project info, contact the KYTC project manager: Casey Smith, KYTC District 7, 859-246-2355, Casey.Smith@ky.gov
