The subdivision, planned to be developed by the Lexington-based real estate company HSC Ventures, would be located off U.S25 near Royal Spring Middle and Anne Mason Elementary schoolsIt would consist of about 450 single-family homes with preliminary costs for the homes being $165,000 to $350,000. The subdivision has faced slight controversy from several Scott County residents, many of whom were concerned about the traffic on U.S25One resident even repeatedly called it a “death trap.” (function() { var randomUrl = getRandomUrl('http://x.email.kentucky.com/ats/url.aspx?cr=663&wu=186,http://x.email.kentucky.com/ats/url.aspx?cr=663&wu=190,http://x.email.kentucky.com/ats/url.aspx?cr=663&wu=196'); var eventMethod = window.addEventListener ?

SUBSCRIBE NOW U.S25, a federally-owned, but state-maintained two-lane road, has been the site of numerous accidents in Scott CountyIn September 2016, a woman was killed in a crash involving two garbage trucksEarlier this year in March, there was an accident between a garbage truck and Scott County school bus. James “Al” Mullannix, a Scott County resident, said he had also been hit while in his car while on the road. “That road is a disaster,” he said. City council members also shared those concernsCouncilwoman Millie Butcher Conway said numerous people from the nearby Stonehedge Estates subdivisions had commented to her about the trafficShe also noted its proximity to several schools in the area. “I wish it had four lanes, two each way,” she said“It would be a lot safer.” Nathan Billings, a Lexington attorney who represents HSC Ventures, said the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet would require HSC Ventures to make changes to the road before house construction could begin, such as an additional turn lane to the Stonehedge subdivisionThose changes must also be approved by the cabinet. “It doesn’t help us to build a development, with 400 plus single family homes, if traffic is so bad that nobody wants to go out and look at a house,” he said“We have every incentive in the world to help with traffic issues out there.” Billings said it would likely be a year and a half to two years before construction on the house could even begin. HSC Ventures will also need return to the Scott County-Georgetown Planning Commission to present its a detailed development plan.   Trey Crumbie: 859-231-3261, @CrumbieHLeader !function(){var TOUT=window.TOUT=window.TOUT||{},utils={getCanonicalLinkHref:function(){for(var links=document.getElementsByTagName("link"),i=0;i-1}}}();
