President Yates Announces The Next “Talk With David” Is Set For Monday, July 24th To Talk About Dixie Highway Paving Delays

President David Yates is encouraging residents to come out to the next “Talk with David” on Monday, July 24th, at the Southwest Regional Library beginning at 6:00pm.

President Yates has invited representatives from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC), District 5 to come and give an update on the Dixie Highway Paving Project. KYTC has not yet confirmed that they will be attending but President Yates wants to provide an opportunity for the state to listen to his constituent’s safety concerns and learn about the impact this construction has had on local businesses.

“My Southwest Council colleagues and I are very well aware of the continuing delays and frustration this state paving project has been experiencing,” says Yates. “It is important that people not confuse this project with the federal $16.9 million TIGER Grant for the Dixie Do Over. It is also important that state officials provide some answers and hear from our community.”

The project began in late 2015 and was to focus on repaving between Bethany Lane to Greenwood Road. It has been inundated with delays.

Representatives from LMPD, MSD, Code Enforcement and United States Congressman John Yarmuth’s office will be on hand to help answer any questions and concerns.

“Please come out and join us. This is also a chance to talk with me about any concerns you might have about any issue.” says Yates.

For more information about the next “Talk with David”, contact President Yates’ office at 574-1125.
