The Changing Face of Transportation





At the Opening Session of the 37th Annual Kentucky Transportation Conference sponsored by Kentuckians for Better Transportation, KYTC Secretary Mike Hancock and KYTC Deputy Secretary Russ Romine spoke about the very probable drop of the Kentucky fuel tax and its impact on the Commonwealth.  As the fuel tax is the major source of revenue for the Kentucky Road Fund, this drop is a major concern as there could be the loss of nearly $130 million for this fund.  The implications impact projects across the state ranging from local maintenance to many of the much larger projects.  For more information, click here.

The Kentucky General Assembly is in session and this is a topic that will be discussed.  We encourage you to reach out to your local representative and senator to educate them on the issues and the need for a fix to this.   


Please let us know if you have any questions.

Waze Connected Citizens Program


Below is an excerpt from the KYTC website


The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet and Waze, the real-time, "crowd-sourced" navigation app powered by the world's largest communities of drivers, have entered into a partnership through the new Waze Connected Citizens program, the company's largest municipal effort to date.


Waze is a GPS-based geographical navigation application program for smartphones with GPS support and display screens.  It provides turn-by-turn information and user-submitted travel times and route details, downloading location-dependent information over a mobile telephone network.


The mission of Waze Connected Citizens is to help cities, citizens and "Wazers", as drivers using the app are known, collaborate to improve their community and answer the question: "What's happening on our roads right not, and where?"

Have You Seen That? 
Our faithful readers know that re-cut movies are one our favorite items to show in this feature. This edition, we wonder what if the blockbuster movie Jaws was actually made by the folks at Disney.  Enjoy!
