Trying to ease the congestion and eliminate the accidents on Turkeyfoot Road in Crestview Hills.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is hosting an open house tonight to discuss the project. More than 40 thousand vehicles travel Turkeyfoot near 275 every day causing long delays. Among the ideas being discussed to improve Turkeyfoot: reconfiguring intersections and adding or extending turn lanes.
The chief engineer for KYTC in Northern Kentucky calls Turkeyfoot Road an important link in our transportation system, "It connects people to businesses, communities, Thomas More University, St. Elizabeth Healthcare and more. Our job is to ensure that they are able to travel through the area safely and efficiently.” Bob Yeager says studies have shown that backups caused by short distances between traffic lights and left turning vehicles have contributed to a higher than average number of accidents.
Tonights meeting is from 5 to 8 at Stiegerwald hall at Thomas More.
The timing for construction will depend on securing funding for the improvement project.
