A public information meeting is coming soon to update Marshall County residents on the widening and improvement of US 62 between KY 95 and Lone Valley Road.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has set the meeting for Tuesday, Feb. 7 at the Calvert City Civic Center. It will be conducted in open-house format from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and will allow attendees to view a video and exhibits, talk to representatives and ask questions about the project.

KYTC District 1 Chief Engineer Kyle Poat said the Cabinet soon will begin final design of the project.

“This meeting will give us a chance to receive public input on several proposals under consideration.  We urge anyone who lives nearby, who owns property along the route, or who travels US 62 in the project area to attend,” Poat said. “We need the public to provide input that will help guide our planning, design and engineering work.”

During the public meeting, handouts containing information about the project, comment sheets, and displays will be available. There will be no formal presentation so attendees can drop in anytime during the meeting. Those attending can review maps, renderings, and other displays, and KYTC representatives will be available to answer questions and accept written or oral comments.

The project runs from the intersection of US 62 and KY 95/Main Street in Calvert City eastward to Lone Valley Road, a distance of 1.29 miles. It includes the intersection with Oak Park Boulevard, along with several other streets and roads.

A survey of police crash data indicates nearly 40 crashes along the project area over the last three years.

Following the public meeting, project displays, and other materials will be available at the District 1 Office in Paducah. 

Comments will be accepted at the District 1 Office until March 10. Comments also may be submitted by mail before that date to Chris Kuntz, Branch Manager Project Development, KYTC District 1 Office, 5501 Kentucky Dam Rd., Paducah, KY 42003.

All written comments will become part of the official meeting record. Once compiled, the meeting record and supporting documentation will be made available for review and copying after an Open Records request has been received and approved.
