This office is contracted by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet to facilitate and coordinate the

Big Sandy  Regional Transportation Planning Committee as well as fulfill several other aspects of 

Transportation planning in the Big Sandy Area. Some of these include but are not limited to; review 

and submittal of new transportation projects to the Transportation Cabinet and assisting the

 Cabinet with localized issues including environmental justice studies for future projects.


The Regional Transportation Planning Program exists to aid local and county governments in

communicating their transportation needs to the KYTC, but it also allows the public to voice their 

concerns, questions and needs to the KYTC, and their local/regional/state elected officials, through their participation in and representation on the regional transportation committee. It is through this

body that a region’s “vision” begins becoming a “reality”.
