The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has scheduled a public meeting on the proposed widening of U.S. 62/Blandville Road in western McCracken County. The project would extend the existing four lanes from Ky. 998/Olivet Church Road west to near McCracken Boulevard at the southern entrance of Technology Park.
The meeting will be 5 to 6:30 p.m. Monday in the conference room of the West Kentucky Community & Technical College Emerging Technology Center.
"Anyone with an interest in this project can drop by, review the displays, ask questions, and make comments that will help guide our engineers, design staff, and consultants as they move forward on the project," Mike McGregor, Transportation Cabinet district chief engineer, said in a news release. "We're seeking input on design features and right of way acquisition that may impact homes and businesses along the project."
Written statements will be accepted. A comment sheet will be distributed.
For anyone unable to attend, comments may be mailed before April 15.
Displays and other materials presented to the public will be available at the cabinet's district office in Paducah during the comment period. Office hours are 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Written comments should be addressed to Randy Williams, Branch Manager Project Development, KYTC District 1 Office, 5501 Kentucky Dam Road, Paducah, KY 42003.
