WASHINGTON, DC — U.S. Representative Harold “Hal” Rogers (KY-5) announced today that $1 million has been slated for Interstate 66 in funding legislation that passed the House Appropriations Committee.
The money will be used for continued planning and right of way acquisition in the Somerset to London and Pike County segments.
“Development of these segments of I-66 is absolutely critical to the future of Kentucky and our national highway system,” Rogers said. “The highway will eventually improve safety for people traveling in and around the area and increase commerce.”
Since 1998, Rogers has secured $96 million in targeted federal funding for development of I-66 across Kentucky.
Rogers works to provide funding for Kentucky transportation funding in his role as a senior member of the House Appropriations Committee.
