Lexington, KY (April 21, 2016) - The Safety Circuit Rider Program has selected Clay County as one of the focus counties for 2015/2016.
The Safety Circuit Rider Program is operated by the Kentucky Transportation Center’s Technology Transfer Program at the University of Kentucky. This program is designed to provide safety-related information, training, and support to agencies responsible for local roadway safety. The county is receiving assistance on identifying low-cost safety improvements on some of their county roads.
Joe Lewis Asher, County Judge/Executive and the Clay County Fiscal Court entered into a cooperative agreement with the Technology Transfer Program in an effort to improve safety on county roads. Road safety reviews have been completed on various roads in the county. The review examined how removing fixed objects such as trees, brush and stumps, and installing signage can improve safety.
Jeff M. Hackbart, P.E., is the Safety Circuit Rider with the Kentucky Transportation Center, Technology Transfer Program. The Safety Circuit Rider program is made possible through funding from the Federal Highway Administration - Kentucky Division in coordination with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
