About this event:

We deserve a beautiful bridge where every user matters!

The KY 8 Licking River Bridge is in need of replacement due to structural issues, not traffic volume demand that declined by 8 percent.

KYTC is inviting feedback to help inform decision-making throughout all phases of the bridge project.

Let's use a unified voice and ask for a bridge that equally prioritizes people on wheels and foot in a safe, efficient, and friendly manner.

A data-driven design to optimize community vibrancy is:

Total of 3 drive lanes

Maximum 11-foot drive lanes

14-foot separated mixed-use path on the northside of the bridge

5-foot pedestrian walkway on the south side of the bridge

Directly connects to Riverfront Commons and the Licking River Greenway

Incorporates places to sit, visit, and take in the views

An iconic design

Please use the list above as your response at the meeting and leave a message for your legislators on the Legislative Message Line at 1-800-372-7181.

Traffic in the bridge corridor has dropped by 8% With your help, the replacement bridge can be an iconic, well-designed bridge that encourages bicycle and pedestrian activity while minimizing drive lanes based on data. Research tells us it will have health benefits, provide equity in transportation, improve neighborhood livability, boost the economy, and enhance our sustainability.
