Kentucky’s I-66 – WHAT A WASTE!

I-66 IS A WASTE OF OUR FORESTS, FARMS, FUTURE AND FUNDS

FORESTS
“It is a waste to destroy the wildlife, recreation and natural beauty of our National Forest.”
I-66 will cut a 400 acre swath through the Daniel Boone National Forest & close to Mammoth Cave National Park destroying creeks, caves, endangered species’ habitat as well as hiking, hunting and fishing areas.

FARMS
“It is a waste to destroy farms and rural communities to build a new highway alongside an existing underused highway.”
Unneeded highways lead to sprawl. Why spend billions of dollars to destroy green space when cities like Lexington are spending millions of dollars to protect green space?

FUTURE
“It is a waste of Kentucky’s people to commit them to minimum wage highway service jobs.”
Studies of rural communities in Appalachia show that new highways create only minimum wage jobs and ruin downtowns and local businesses.

FUNDS
“It is a waste to spend a billion dollars to build a new road when we need to fix existing roads just so our children can get to school.”
“Kentucky will need to raise at least $200 million in matching funds to build I-66. Which taxes are they going to raise next?”

Who really wants this road? Who is going to profit? It is not going to be you!
