Reminder: US127 comment period ending soon

By Amber Hale

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) is reminding everyone that public input is needed to help evaluate potential improvements along the U.S. 127 corridor in Russell Springs between the Jamestown Bypass and KY 379.

KYTC, the Lake Cumberland Area Development District and Stantec Consulting Services have been conducting a planning study to identify public concerns and potential improvements along U.S. 127. An initial round of public outreach was completed in February with more than 150 survey responses. The study team used that public input along with engineering and traffic data (current and projected to 2045) to develop possible short- and long-term improvements.

Public input continues to be a critical component of the planning and project development process. An online story map summarizing the preliminary improvement concepts can be found by clicking here or on The story map ends with a short survey that gives members of the public a second opportunity to register opinions, which the study team will use in developing final recommendations and the priority order of future improvements.

Once recommendations are finalized, a report summarizing findings from the study will be made available to the public. Further funding will be necessary to advance any improvement concept identified as part of this study.

Please complete the survey by Sept. 14, 2021. For additional project information or special assistance, please contact the KYTC Project Manager, Jeff Dick at or call 502-764-0331.
