The average driver in Northern Kentucky loses $2,154 annually as a result of driving on roads that are deteriorated, congested, and that lack some desirable safety features, according to a new report from TRIP, a national transportation research nonprofit based in Washington, DC.
Local speakers will join TRIP at a virtual news conference on Tuesday to highlight the report’s findings. The report, “Kentucky Transportation by the Numbers: Meeting the State’s Need for Safe, Smooth and Efficient Mobility,” examines road and bridge conditions, congestion, economic development, highway safety, the impact of COVID-19 on vehicle travel trends and transportation funding in the Bowling Green, Lexington, Louisville, Northern Kentucky and Owensboro urban areas and statewide.
A link to a video containing TRIP spokesperson comments on the report’s findings for the Northern Kentucky area will also be posted on the TRIP website at 9:30 a.m. EST on February 15.
