The Federal Highway Administration designated alternative fuel corridors in Kentucky as “corridor-ready”. The designations are the result of an application with corridor nominations submitted by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet in 2017. The Kentucky Clean Fuels Coalition coordinated with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet to assist with compiling the application of potential corridors in Kentucky.
The Alternative Fuels Corridor Program was created due to the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act (Pub. L. No. 114-94). Fast Act section 1413 required the Secretary of Transportation to designate corridors to improve mobility of passenger and commercial vehicles that employ electric vehicle charger, hydrogen, propane, and natural gas fueling technologies across the United States. With the designation of alternative fuel corridors, Federal Highway Administration is establishing a national network of alternative fueling and charging infrastructure along national highway system corridors.
