Judge Wells and Squires Mueller and Sebastian attended a press conference this afternoon with Mayor Layne Wilkerson, Transportation Secretary Jim Gray and Governor Andy Beshear at the site of the future City Transit Center and parking garage.

Governor Beshear presented ceremonial check for $6.75 million to community leaders to begin the construction of this facility. This project will kick off the development of the site of the old Frankfort Convention Center also known as parcels B and C. Once constructed the new transit center will feature 300 parking spaces and 5,000 sq. ft. of enclosed administrative office and public transit user space.
