ASHLAND — The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC), along with consulting firm Parsons Brinckerhoff, has assembled a project team to update the Kentucky Statewide Rail Plan.
The plan is a policy document that details freight and rail passenger operations and trends in Kentucky, and focuses on setting a framework for high level goals and policies that can be used by decision makers, industry officials, and others interested in rail in the commonwealth.
You are invited to participate in an open-house Public Meeting for the update of the Kentucky Rail Plan. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2014, and will begin promptly at 4 p.m. and will close at 7 p.m. Drop by anytime between those hours at the Ashland Transportation Center, 99 15th Street.
The purpose of the meeting is to gather feedback about rail transportation issues and needs in the state. KYTC, along with Parsons Brinckerhoff, will have information to share regarding the rail plan, including previously identified issues and goals for the state’s rail transportation system.
KYTC is seeking feedback along with other concerns to include in a community’s needs regarding improvements to the system, noting that there are limited funds available for public investment.
