Kentucky Transportation Hall of Fame Inductees Announced

Published: Jan 22, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Jan. 22, 2014) — The Kentucky Transportation Hall of Fame inductees for 2013 were announced Jan. 10, at the closing luncheon of the Kentuckians for Better Transportation Conference in Lexington.

 

Vickie S. Bourne and Joe A. Burchett, Sr. were announced as the newest inductees. Their selection for the Hall of Fame recognizes them as individuals “who, by their foresight, dedication, leadership, perseverance, and integrity, have significantly enhanced transportation systems in the Commonwealth.”

 

Vickie S. Bourne has spent more than 40 years in the Transportation Cabinet and Department of Highways. For nearly 30 years, she has focused on enhancing public transportation services. In 2001, Bourne was appointed executive director for the Office of Transportation Delivery. Under her guidance, public transit now provides more than 29 million passenger trips per year in the Commonwealth. These trips provide Kentucky’s citizens with access to jobs, shopping, education, medical services and other vital needs. Kentucky’s Human Service Transportation Delivery Program has received substantial national media attention and served as a model for other states. Bourne was inducted into the Kentucky Public Transit Hall of Fame in 1999.

 

Joe A. Burchett Sr. received his Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering from the University of Kentucky in 1960. After eight years with the Kentucky Department of Highways, he began working in the private sector. In the early 1970s he created Bush & Burchett Inc. The company has built more than 200 bridges in Eastern Kentucky and West Virginia, some of which have received national awards. Now under the leadership of Joe’s son, the company continues to be one of the major bridge-builders in the Appalachian Region. Joe has also been active in many state and national organizations, including the Kentucky Association of Highway Contractors and the American Society of Civil Engineers.

 

The Hall of Fame was established by the Kentucky Transportation Center in 1990. Details on the Hall of Fame, the selection process, and a list of all selectees can be found at the KTC website: http://www.ktc.uky.edu.
