Government leaders in northern Kentucky banded together for an economic development initiative. The judge-executives in Carroll, Trimble, Gallatin, Henry, Oldham, and Owen Counties created the Interstate 71 Kentucky Corridor Regional Task Force. This group was formed after months of collaboration over the past few years. They successfully lobbied the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet to expand I-71 to six lanes between Boone County and Jefferson County, Kentucky. Leaders believe they can continue a fruitful partnership through this task force.
