Local Evaluation of the Eastern Kentucky Rural Highway Information Project--Federal Aid Research

The project will focus on the establishment of a 511 Premium Service Package in a 42 county region of south central and southeastern Kentucky and will build upon the infrastructure already in place for Kentucky\'s existing 511 system. The current system provides traffic, construction, and weather information for travelers in Kentucky. The 511 Premium Service being developed by SEKTDA will allow travelers to use the system for other types of information within the region concerning tourism, special events, local points of interest, and obtain concierge services (such as hotel reservations). As such, Kentucky will be only the second state to offer tourism information in addition to basic travel information on its 511 system.
