Local State Senators React To State Road Plan Compromise

Two local State Senators say they are pleased with the two-year road plan that was approved during the final days of the 2014 session of the Kentucky General Assembly. First District State Senator Stan Humphries says the best news for Trigg County was that there were no projects removed or delayed.

Humphries said he was disappointed that some of the interchanges along I-69 in Graves County had to be left out of the final road plan. Meanwhile, 3rd District State Senator Whitney Westerfield says Christian County also fared well, with no major changes to projects already on the board. Westerfield says a critical project in southern Todd County was added to the road plan.

Both Senators were among the majority of legislators that voted for the road plan that was agreed upon and approved by the Kentucky General Assembly Tuesday.
