Public Favors More Development on Ky Side of Breaks Interstate Park
PIKEVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Public comments so far have been favorable toward a proposal to increase development on the Kentucky side of Breaks Interstate Park.
The park encompasses about 4,800 acres on the Kentucky-Virginia border and is supported by both states.
Park officials are getting public comments on a proposed master plan that calls for a Kentucky gateway, road improvements, trail shelters and additional campsites.
Park Superintendent Austin Bradley told The Appalachian News-Express that several people who spoke at a recent meeting held by the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation favored the plan for more development on the Kentucky side.
He says the most-raised issue was a lack of access to the park in Kentucky.
