Highway District 12 officials have set a public meeting to provide information about the congestion/ safety improvement project at the junction of Main Street and School Hill in downtown Whitesburg.

The meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. on Thursday, February 19, at the Letcher County Cooperative Extension Service offi ce in Whitesburg.

Ron Slone, project manager for Highway District 12, said the meeting is informal. “We will present a project overview at 6:30; however, people can stop by any time between 6 and 8 o’clock to talk with engineers and others from the highway department who are involved in the project.”

Information handouts, comment sheets, and displays of a proposed “roundabout” or standard intersection alternative will be available. Written comments from this meeting will become part of the offi cial record for the project. When all the comments are compiled, they will be available to the public through the Cabinet’s Open Records Request process.

Slone said that people with physical disabilities who require assistance from meeting planners in order to attend should contact Teresa Baker no later than Tuesday, February 17, at 606- 433- 7791, extension 285.
