There are two main objectives of the Freight Movement and Intermodal Access in Kentucky Study (SPR 98-189) undertaken by the Kentucky Transportation Center for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet: evaluation of the access for trucks between intermodal or other truck generating sites and the National Highway System (NHS); and furthering the understanding of freight commodity flows throughout the state. This report summarizes the access evaluation for one cluster of facilities located in McCracken county in the Purchase Area Development District (ADD) and KYTC Highway District # 1. The location of the site in Paducah is shown in Figure 1. Work on other specific sites as well as the freight commodity flow task are on-going and are documented elsewhere.
