Time is running out for sharing your opinion on future of Kentucky's transportation system

Time is running out for Kentuckians to share opinions and make their voices heard in a Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) initiative to update the Long Range Transportation Plan of the Commonwealth.

Members of the public have until Feb. 25 to take a brief, confidential survey designed to gauge opinion on Kentucky’s transportation system and what it should offer in decades to come.

To date, more than 8,200 people have taken the “Your Turn” survey, which is offered online and also in paper form.

The “Your Turn” survey consists of 19 questions concerning demographics, transportation needs and desires, and funding options. Public input will be used to gauge the expectations of those who travel the state and to plan for the future transportation system.

In addition to the survey, the updated plan will consider changes in communities, freight movement, financial resources, economic development, rural and urban transportation, the environment and other transportation issues.

The “Your Turn” survey is available in English and Spanish. A link to the survey and other transportation information can be found at www.transportation.ky.gov. A direct link isyourturn.transportation.ky.gov. The direct link will also provide compiled survey results in late 2013 as well as other information throughout the update of the Long Range Plan.

Paper surveys are available at:
• KYTC highway district offices
• Area Development District offices
• Metropolitan Planning Organization offices
• Transportation Cabinet Office Building, 200 Mero St., Frankfort

Call (502) 564-3419 weekdays, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Eastern, for information or to request a survey.
