I-66 Opposition Comments from Archive

“1. The project is pure pork at a time when we are $9 trillion in debt, and KY-80 can handily handle all the traffic for the next 50 years.
2. Another crossing of the Rockcastle wild and scenic River is indefensible and illegal according to current KY law.
3. Anouncing a preferred route does nothing to assure that karst features will not be spoiled. Archaeological and historical studies need to be done and a practical mitigation plan developed for each karst feature. General assertion that they will avoid, minimize, or mitigate karst issues are not believable.
4. The large number of proposed new interchanges — all without any zoning or environmental control — means more pollution and straight pipes from interchange developments. Are the individuals who have bought up the land and development rights at these proposed intersections on the take?
5. I’m opposed to the whole project and have heard or read nothing yet to tell me they have been listening.”
