Officials are seeking input from those who travel through Kentucky as they update a long-range plan for the state’s transportation needs.

Information collected in the Kentucky Statewide Transportation Survey will be used to help identify goals, policies, needs and improvement priorities over the next 25 years, the Transportation Cabinet said in a statement. Input on all modes of travel — including vehicle, boat, train and plane — will be accepted through Dec. 6.

When completed late next year, the plan will guide transportation policy decisions and investment strategies through 2045, officials said.

“Our mission is providing the people of Kentucky and those that travel through our state with a safe, efficient, environmentally-sound, and fiscally responsible transportation system,” said Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Secretary Jim Gray. “But the system also needs to meet the needs and desires of the people who use it, so we’re giving everyone a voice in the planning process.”
