SANDY HOOK, Ky. (WSAZ) -- The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will hold a public hearing Thursday to present the preliminary preferred alternative for reconstructing KY 32 in Elliott and Rowan counties.

The hearing will take place from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Elliott County High School in Sandy Hook.

The hearing is one of the final steps in a plan to rebuild a narrow, winding section of KY 32 between Newfoundland and Elliottville.

The KY 32 reconstruction project began six years ago with a planning study that sought ways to improve the highway. Six design alternatives – ranging from spot improvements along the existing highway to new roadways to the north or south – have been under consideration.

In November 2012, the project team narrowed its design choice Alternative 3. That plan calls for a new 12-mile route north of existing KY 32 and features straighter, wider travel lanes capable of increasing traffic safety and improving travel times.

Alternative 3 is the plan being presented in the public hearing.
