A public meeting has been scheduled in Daviess County to discuss the realignment of a section of KY 144. 

According to Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 2 Chief Engineer Kevin McClearn, the project includes reconstruction of several curves to improve safety.

"We're interested in obtaining input from area citizens on this new alignment plan," McClearn said."We'll have engineers and design staff on hand to discuss the project and get feedback from the public. We encourage everyone who regularly travels this section of KY 144 and has an interest in the highway to come by to review the plans and provide comments."

The public information meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, December 4 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., at the East View Elementary School. East View Elementary School is located at 6104 KY Hwy 405 in Owensboro.

Transportation employees and their consultants share exhibits that outline the preliminary design of the project. The meeting will be an informal format with opportunities for interested citizens to view displays and ask questions.

Both written and oral statements will be accepted at the meeting. A recorder will be available for those who desire to make oral statements and a comment sheet will be distributed to make it more convenient to provide written comments. Written statements will be accepted at the meeting and for a period of 15 days after the public information meeting.

Following the meeting, exhibits will be available for viewing at the Kentucky Department of Highways District 2 Office at 1840 North Main Street in Madisonville.

Written statements should be addressed to:
