US 127 Russell Springs Improvement Study

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) is conducting a planning study to evaluate potential improvement options to increase safety, mobility, and connectivity on US 127 between the Jamestown Bypass and KY 379. US 127 supports local, regional, and statewide travel. This study will identify short and long-term strategies to improve traffic conditions and safety for all those who travel through the area.

 The public will play a critical role throughout the planning and project development process, specifically by providing local knowledge of current traffic and safety concerns and providing feedback that helps inform decision making. The first round of public outreach was completed on February 15, 2021 with more than 150 survey responses received. The study team will use this public input along with engineering and traffic data (current and projected to 2045) to develop possible short- and long-term highway improvements. Another round of public involvement is scheduled for late Spring 2021 to collect your input on any proposed improvements. Further funding will be necessary to advance any improvement concept identified as part of this study.
