Does anyone know of plan to narrow lanes of new Heartland?

Heartland plans do need upgrading: It needs to be 4-lane all the way to 1-64 to Simpsonville, and it needs to include an Eastern Bypass from KY 55 to KY 80 and Cumberland Parkway between Russell Springs and Columbia. - ED WAGGENER

Is the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet planning to narrow the lanes in the new Columbia Bypass to the Adair County line Heartland Parkway? Reports being circulating in town is that the lanes will be reduced in width from 12 ft. to 11 ft. where there are 3 lanes planned. Narrowing the road in anticipation of more traffic doesn't sound like progress to most. Comments or corrections welcome. - EW
