The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is seeking input from community members to help design three possible routes for a new bypass connecting Veterans Memorial Parkway and Bypass Road.
Local road committee members met with Kentucky Transportation Cabinet consulting engineers Tuesday to develop three road alternates to present to the cabinet.
Michael Jones, an engineer with Vaughn & Melton and a member of the project design team, facilitated the meeting and helped committee members create the alternate designs.
“We’ve got to look at things other than just what’s on the ground out there,” Jones said.
Two of the proposed routes will connect to Bypass Road at or near Windridge Drive, and the third route will connect to Boone Avenue before it connects with Bypass Road, using an existing intersection.
City Manager Ken Kerns said the engineers will determine if the alternates will require additional lanes or other changes to existing roads.
