Posted: 28-Mar-2002 2:45AM CST

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Secretary James C. Codell III and Federal Highway Administration Division Administrator Jose Sepulveda issued the following joint statement on the I-71 widening project in Jefferson County:

"We are working together to ensure that the proposed widening of Interstate 71 between Spaghetti Junction and the Snyder Freeway in Louisville is evaluated appropriately. The Transportation Cabinet has hired a consultant to perform preliminary engineering and environmental analysis for this route consistent with fiscal constraints and schedules contained in the Cabinet's Six-Year Highway Plan. The Cabinet will develop an environmental assessment for this project, and will work closely with the community throughout the development of the project to foster public ownership and participation in the decision-making process to determine if a six-lane improvement is acceptable."
