MAYFIELD, Ky. (KBSI) – More than 20 people attended a Kentucky Transportation Cabinet public information meeting Thursday evening to review safety enhancements planned for a section of KY 303/Cuba Road and the KY 303 intersection with KY 121/Paris Road in Mayfield.

The meeting was held at Mayfield High School from 5 to 7 p.m., Thursday. It was designed to get public input on a safety and traffic flow enhancements. Attendees reviewed exhibits and provided comments.

KYTC District 1 Project Development Manager Chris Kuntz says KYTC is seeking public input to prepare for the final design process that will lead to construction in the next few years.

The open house format allowed citizens to come by at their convenience, review the displays and make comments.

“Our design team will carefully read and consider all of the input and feedback provided by the public,” Kuntz said. “The information will guide the design team as we work to produce a project that meets the long-term needs of the community.”

The safety enhancements include a center turn lane along KY 303 and improved alignment of the KY 303/KY 121 intersection.

A decision on final design of the project is expected in late 2023 or early 2024 with construction funds available in 2025.
