The results of a Commodity Flow Analysis of Hazardous Materials for Interstate 64 (I-64) conducted by Western Kentucky University in partnership with the Rowan County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) are presented within this report. This report specifically focuses on the portion of the I-64 corridor located in Rowan County, Kentucky. Figure 1.1 shows the location of Rowan County in relationship to the state of Kentucky. The purpose of this report is to present information regarding the patterns of hazardous materials transportation observed along I-64 in Rowan County from June 16, 2014 through July 11, 2014. Finally, the report presents and assesses survey information that was collected from fixed facilities within Rowan County that ship and receive hazardous materials. The commodity flow analysis was necessary in order to provide the Rowan County LEPC with information about hazardous materials transport patterns so that they can better prepare for potential incidents and releases of hazardous materials along I-64. The data collected will assist in the emergency planning process by providing valuable information about frequently observed hazardous materials within the duration of the study.
