Public notification of amendment to the Lexington Area MPO’s Transportation Improvement Program

The Lexington Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is conducting a 15-day public review period for Amendment 1 to the MPO’s FY 2021 – FY 2024 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). 

The amendment is being completed at the request of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet to commit state transportation funds to the Nicholasville Road (US 27) Access Management Project (Section 1) from Man O’ War Boulevard in Fayette County to 1,000 feet south of Brannon Road in Jessamine County.

The project is an outcome of the US 27 Access Management Plan that was completed in 2013. The project is also identified in the MPO’s long-range 2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan with goals of improving safety, traffic flow and multimodal facilities. 

The amendment commits $1 million in state funding to advance the design phase of the project. The design phase, which will occur at a later time, will include opportunities for the public to review project details and to comment on various design aspects of the project.  

Public comment on Amendment 1 to the TIP will be accepted from July 23, 2021, through Aug. 7, 2021.  The amendment and full TIP document are available at the Lexington Area Metropolitan Planning Organization website.

The MPO is the transportation planning agency for Fayette and Jessamine County. The TIP is a list of transportation programs and projects that transportation funds will be allocated to during the next four years. Projects that seek the use of federal transportation funds or are considered by the MPO to be regionally significant are required to be included in the TIP.
