The project begins at the intersection of KY 32 on the north side of I-64 near Morehead and moves northeast paralleling I-64 and the North Fork of Triplett Creek through Cranston to the second (east) intersection of KY 799. Existing KY 377 is a narrow two-lane highway that provides access to numerous community, business and residential properties. The narrow lanes and sharp hills and valleys appear to be a contributing factor to crash frequency and severity along this portion of KY 377.
All proposed geometry will meet the criteria for a 55 mph design speed, meaning the curves and hills will be smoother, flatter and safer to drive. Travel lanes will be 12 feet wide and a wide shoulder will be added.
