Recommended Highway Plan presented to General Assembly
Some highlights of the recommended plan:
 
  • $1.9 billion through FY 2016 for the Louisville-Southern Indiana Ohio River Bridges Project. The total assumes $1.44 billion of “innovative financing” to be determined by a Kentucky-Indiana bi-state authority. The total also includes $231 million from sale of Grant Anticipation Revenue Vehicle (GARVEE) bonds this year and in FY 2011.
  • A $300 million sale of state road bonds, of which about $155 million would be available for new projects. The rest would be used to finish state projects from a bond sale in 2009.
  •  $112 million from a second sale of bonds to support “BRAC” projects associated with the realignment of Fort Knox.
  •  $330 million for new bridges over Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake.
  • $301 million through the coming biennium, and $611.1 million through FY 2016, for bridge replacements statewide.
