Transpark Opponents Want Study Released

Bowling Green, KY – Some opponents of the Kentucky Trimodal Transpark project want the Intermodal Transportation Authority to release a consultant's study to the public. The organization, Karst Environmental Education and Protection, charges that the marketing report has not been released because it raises doubts about the feasibility of the controversial project.

Louisville attorney Leslie Barras filed an open records request to get a copy of the report. She says the public has a right to see what the document says.

ITA President Dan Cherry says the report is a draft document and should be considered a work in progress. Cherry disagrees with opponents who say the release of the report has been delayed until after the upcoming elections.
