Reconstruction of KY 377 in Rowan County

​The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is proposing a reconstruction of KY 377 from the KY 32 intersection through Cranston north to the second KY 799 intersection to improve safety and reliability of the highway because the existing road has hills and curves that limit sight distance and the lack of shoulders as well as obstacles along the roadside are hazardous even in the case of slight driver error.

 Project Description & Proposal

 

​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.
