Transportation Cabinet seeking public input for Jessamine-Fayette Connectivity Study

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has launched JessFayStudy.com, a new public involvement tool to solicit and encourage feedback regarding new transportation options for those who travel in central Kentucky. 

The Jessamine-Fayette Connectivity Study will examine current conditions related to safety and mobility within the study area and will consider how to improve east-west connectivity. The current study will not consider any connections or roadway improvements that would cross or impact the Kentucky River. 

No decisions regarding specific roadway alignments have been made and local input will help to shape next steps.

“The public will play a critical role in the KYTC study process by providing local knowledge and feedback that will help inform our decision making,” said Casey Smith, planning supervisor for KYTC and project manager for the Jessamine-Fayette Connectivity Study. “Our team is currently collecting and analyzing a significant volume of data in order to make comprehensive recommendations on how to improve safety and connectivity within the study area – especially as travel patterns change throughout the region – and we need the public to weigh in as we move throughout our study process,” Smith continued.  

JessFayStudy.com offers users visual information, study background and public involvement tools to provide feedback to KYTC and to support outreach within local communities.

Specifically, KYTC has published a public survey that will allow respondents to answer several questions about their travel patterns within the study area, identify problem spots they encounter when traveling through the area, and offer the study team feedback on potential solutions.

The Jessamine-Fayette Connectivity Study is in the planning phase and is not related to previous planning studies that examined linking US 27 to I-75 with a new crossing of the Kentucky River.
