Following a public information meeting in Calvert City last night (Thursday), Kentucky Transportation Cabinet officials and engineers are considering how to modernize the nearby I-69 / I-24 interchange.  

Thursday, state highway officials and project engineers heard comment from residents at a public information meeting in Calvert City. 


The first of two public meetings concerning the future of the U.S. 51 Ohio River Bridge is tonight from 4-7 at Cairo High School.

Kentucky and Illinois highway officials are working with the Federal Highway Administration to gather public input on the nearly 80-year-old  structure. The bridge could be repaired or replaced.


Highway department officials have set dates for two public meetings this month to discuss options for improving or replacing the U.S. 51 Ohio River Bridge between Wickliffe, Ky. and Cairo, Ill.

The first meeting is Monday, May 20 from 4-7 p.m. at Cairo High School. The second meeting is Tuesday, May 21 from 4-7 p.m. at the Ballard Center Community Room in La Center.


The Federal Highway Administration has granted $120,330 to improve signage along the Kentucky Great River Road that runs through four western Kentucky counties. Many of the new signs will alert drivers to the presence of bicyclists, hikers and horseback riders along the National Scenic Byway. The Kentucky Great River Road runs 63 miles along the Mississippi River through Ballard, Carlisle, Hickman and Fulton counties. It’s part of a highway corridor that follows the Mississippi River from its source in Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico.
