Highway 'hot spot' locations in Northern Kentucky

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is an executive branch agency responsible for overseeing the development and maintenance of a safe, efficient multi-modal transportation system throughout the commonwealth.

The cabinet manages more than 27,000 miles of highways, including roughly 20,500 miles of secondary roads, 3,600 miles of primary roads, and more than 1,400 interstate and parkway miles.

Kentucky has lost 4,478 people in motor vehicle crashes in the past five years. The deaths and injuries from these crashes are a serious public health concern and are not conducive to the high quality of life expected in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

Kentucky received $421 million in stimulus funding for transportation projects. $368 million was set aside for statewide highway improvements.

KYTC obligates the funding as projects become ready a list of projects by state can be found on the US Department of Transportation Web site at http://testimony.ost.dot.gov/ARRAcerts/
