Construction on I-66 in Pike County Could Begin Late Next Year
Posted: 6-Sep-2002 10:39PM CDT

A transportation cabinet highway planner, Keith Damron, reports that construction of a segment of I-66 in Pike County could begin next year. The actual beginning of construction is dependent on final federal approval by the U.S. Department of Transportation and available funding. This section of I-66 is about 30 miles long and would begin at US 23 in Pikeville and extend to the West Virginia border. This road is expected to cost $1.5 billion (or $50 million per mile).
