Safer Travel On The US 60 Corridor

The US 60 corridor through Henderson and Daviess Counties is safer to travel these days.

The road is one of Kentucky's 'Drive Smart' safety corridors, which focuses on lowering the rate of fatal and serious accidents.

By running public awareness campaigns, talking to schools and holding enforcement blitzes, the US 60 corridor safety team lowered their fatality rate more than 30%. It's the most improved road in the state.

Regional Transportation Planner Gina Boaz says, "We actually have more people in our area that might not have been there, if we hadn't have been doing some of these."

Boaz says they plan to continue their safety efforts, to keep everyone safe on their roads.
