Many local residents have inquired as to the progress of the Lewisburg Bypass and when another meeting would be held for the project.
At this time, the human and environmental issues within the study area for the Lewisburg Bypass are being studied for the required environmental assessment (EA) needed to move forward with the project.
“We anticipate approval from Federal Highways for this document by late summer with a public hearing later this fall,” said Greg Meredith, chief district engineer for district 3. “From that point we will move forward into phase II design.”
The project description consists of the reconstruction of US 431 from the existing four-lanes north of Epleys Station to approximately 1.5 miles north of KY 106 east, north of Lewisburg.
US 431 is the primary north-south corridor for Logan County and carries approximately 5,400 vehicles at Lewisburg to almost 6,000 vehicles just north of Russellville.
