Transportation Cabinet Secretary Bailey told state legislators on Wednesday that no projects were cut from this year's version of the Six Year Highway plan; however, some projects have delayed due to the states budget problems.
The list of projects is too long to list here; however, some notable projects are listed below.
A notable absence from the list is funding for replacing the I-71/I-75 Brent Spence Bridge over the Ohio River; however, the project remains on the unscheduled needs list and officials claim that it is still a priority. Construction on the project is still over a decade away.
This year the transportation cabinet has split the list into projects that will receive federal funding and projects that will not receive federal funding. Projects that will be funded only by the state are expected to be delayed and will be prioritized by need.

|I live in Onton,KY(Webster County) on hwy 137...what terrible road! Either a coal mines is being constructed or a loading ramp for one is and the tractors and trailers have destroyed the newly repaired road in 2 days! traffic can't exceed 25 miles per hour because they do not want to damage their vehicles. Pot holes have gotten so bad when driven through the vehicle drags and bounces terribly. I understand there is a budget for these things but please consider having it checked out before a serious accident occurs.|
