The results of a Commodity Flow Analysis of Hazardous Materials for Interstate 64 (I-64) conducted by Western Kentucky University in partnership with the Montgomery 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 Montgomery County, Kentucky. Figure 1.1 shows the location of Montgomery County in relationship to the state of Kentucky. The purpose of this report is to present information regarding the patterns of hazardous materials transportation along I-64 as observed from July 14, 2014 through August 1, 2014. In addition, this report also summarizes hazardous materials incidents that have occurred over the previous ten years (January 2004-2013). Finally, the report presents and assesses survey information that was collected from fixed facilities within Montgomery County that ship and receive hazardous materials. The commodity flow analysis was necessary in order to provide the Montgomery 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.
