The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is holding a hearing next week to seek public comment on the reconstruction of U.S. 641 between Murray and Hazel.
The meeting is on August 22 at the Hazel Baptist Church from 5 to 7 p.m.
KYTC says the public can review the preferred route and alternatives and provide input on the environmental assessment document and additional direction on the final design process.
The county received a $23 million federal grant for the project. Local leaders say the reconstruction is needed due to heavy traffic and safety concerns.
A one-mile portion of U.S. 641 just south of Murray is expected to be ready for construction bids this fall.
