The goal of this Committee is to promote the development of a safe, cost-efficient, accessible and balanced transportation and communication system throughout the ADD. The Committee is a cooperative forum for local leaders and a regional advocate for producing solutions to regional transportation problems. One of the most important tasks of the RTC is its partnership with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) in its Statewide Transportation Planning Program. RTC members create a prioritized list of highway, bikeway, pedestrian and Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) projects, based on regional impact, which the KYTC uses to develop its state-level transportation plans. The RTC also works with county governments throughout the ADD to create prioritized project lists at the local level and to administer the KYTC regional transportation program. This Committee was established to fulfill contractual obligations with KYTC and is directed by Community Planning.
