I-264 and US 42 Interchange Improvement Project

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) is in the design phase of a project to improve Interstate 264 (Watterson Expressway) in eastern Jefferson County.  This project includes improvements to I-264 between the Westport Road and Interstate 71 interchanges as well as reconstruction of the US 42 (Brownsboro Road) interchange.  I-264 will be widened to provide three basic through lanes in each direction, as well as auxiliary lanes between interchanges.  Two-lane ramps will be added from I-264 eastbound to I-71 northbound and at the I-264 westbound off-ramp to Westport Road.  A two-lane on-ramp will be added at US 42 to I-264 westbound. 

A public meeting was held on July 24, 2014 to present three alternatives for reconstruction of the I-264/US 42 interchange.  Design plans were also shown for the widening of I-264, improvements to KY 22 and addition of turning lanes at US 42 and Rudy Lane.  Approximately 270 people attended this meeting at Christ Church United Methodist, 4614 Brownsboro Road.
