A transportation plan for Kenton County was adopted by the OKI Board in March 2003. The plan was intended to meet Kenton County’s transportation needs to year 2030, however a decade has passed since this plan was adopted and much has changed. Population growth south of KY 16, land use shifts, a worldwide economic recession, and growing elderly population are just a few of the changes that have created new challenges to the way people and goods travel in Kenton County. Due to these and many other factors, a fresh look at Kenton County’s current and future transportation needs has been recognized by county leaders and will be addressed by this new plan. Learn More
