Meeting to review future interchange

Staff report

A public meeting will be held June 26 to share plans for a new Interstate 24/69 interchange at Calvert City.

The meeting will be from 5-7 p.m. at the Calvert City Civic Center. Displays showing some of the design options will be available for review.

People will be able to discuss the preliminary plans with engineers, design staff and consultants working on the project.

"We encourage anyone who travels through this interchange or lives in the area to attend this public meeting," said Chief Engineer Mike McGregor of the state Transportation Cabinet's District 1, in a statement. "It will be conducted in an informal format that allows participants to drop by, review the exhibits and materials, then provide comments.

"Public input will help us to design this new roadway to benefit the traveling public."

The interchange, at I-24 Exit 25 and Purchase Parkway Exit 52, will be upgraded from its current cloverleaf to a more traditional pattern to improve traffic flow and meet interstate standards to allow Interstate 69 to be extended along the Purchase Parkway.

When completed, I-69 will extend about 155 miles through Kentucky between Fulton and Henderson.

All oral and written comments will become part of the official meeting record.

Those who cannot attend the meeting can submit their comments in writing before July 16 to Randy Williams, branch manager for project development, KYTC District 1 Office, 5501 Kentucky Dam Road, Paducah, KY 42003.
