An innovative interchange in Lexington is getting national attention.  The traffic flow strategy was recognized this week in Frankfort.

The American Council of Engineering Companies award recognizes the redesign of the Versailes Road-New Circle Road interchange.  The Louisville-based Qk4 engineering consulting firm incorporated a unique design aimed at resolving safety issues at exchange.  The Versailles Road interchange is the second Kentucky project earning the national American Council of Engineering Companies award of excellence honor.
