Online site more user friendly and easy to navigate
The next time you log-on to the Internet, check out the new look of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) Web site at transportation.ky.gov. The site, with a more up-to-date design and an improved navigation structure, was recently launched.
“Our new Web site is much more user friendly,” said Transportation Cabinet Secretary Bill Nighbert. “The site is easy to navigate and has an attractive modern look. We want our Web site to reflect the forward thinking and innovative approaches we engage in as we build a stronger transportation network across the state.”
The new Web site contains information on more than 100 cabinet programs. Detailed information on the Safe Routes to School program, Transportation Enhancement program and a host of other community related projects is all available online. Kentucky’s six-year road plan, along with active construction project maps from every county, are also available at the Web site. Local contact information for KYTC county facilities and highway district information is easy to find and presented in a consistent manner. Information about highway safety activities and KYTC news is also just a click away.
Many new features have been added to the site. Among them are a shift to a program/project-centric structure, a Cabinet News scroller, a transportation-specific search engine, a project ticker highlighting KYTC programs and projects within the cabinet.
“These new features enhance the public service that our Web site provides,” added Jennifer Weeks, executive director of the cabinet’s Office of Information Technology (OIT). “This is a Web site that was developed by a number of our very talented staff members and it’s a site in which the cabinet can be extremely proud.”
John Sykes, team lead of the Web Support Services section in OIT, headed up the Web site redesign team. Several employees, including Jim Webb, Jay Clifton, Matt Snow and Bret Blair provided their expertise to this project.
“We are determined to offer the best online services to our customers in Kentucky,” concluded Secretary Nighbert.
