The first open house for the Bullitt County Transportation Study will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. May 28, 2009 at the Paroquet Springs Conference Center, 395 Paroquet Springs Drive in Shepherdsville.

The study will provide the basis for identifying and prioritizing future transportation improvements in Bullitt County over the next 20 years. It will include an evaluation and analysis of existing and projected traffic conditions, an evaluation of alternative transportation modes, and recommendations of priorities for future projects.

A steering committee, led by Bullitt County Judge Executive Melanie Roberts, KIPDA, KYTC District 5 and other community leaders, is coordinating the study and working with stakeholders to establish goals, objectives and priorities. ENTRAN is the consultant for the project.

The focus of this open house will be to discuss existing and anticipated future transportation issues throughout the county.

The study team also will gather input from the public for a variety of projects under consideration by the steering committee.

Proposed project maps will be available for visitors to review, ask questions about, and to offer feedback. ENTRAN also will solicit public input for establishing goals and priorities for the study.

The open house is informal and residents are invited to stay the whole time or drop in when it is convenient for them.
