The LFUCG Division of Engineering, Design and
Construction Section oversees roadway, sidewalk and trail projects that are initiated by the Urban County Government. Selection of sidewalk connectivity and improvement projects are made through identification and ranking methods that receive input from several city departments, and from the Lexington Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO). The goal is to connect missing sections of sidewalk based on the greatest need. Per Federal guidelines, ramps must be retro-fitted after major repairs take place like resurfacing. The paving budget for such retro-fits in Lexington is $12 million.
