English Station Road Widening

 

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) is in the final design phase of a project to widen North English Station Road to three lanes between west Aiken Road to just past Avoca Road at the railroad crossing.

English Station Road is classified as an urban arterial in eastern Jefferson County, Kentucky within the City of Middletown. The project vicinity is bounded by US 60 (Shelbyville Road) to the south and I-265 to the east. The current Highway Plan identifies Item No. 5-353.00 as the widening of English Station Road to three-lanes from West Aiken Road to Avoca Road. The proposed project will provide an improved link between the existing three-lane segments immediately north and south of this unimproved two-lane section. This widening project will eliminate the existing bottle neck to increase capacity, mobility and safety along the entire corridor. The objectives are to provide a wider roadway through this highly-developed area to meet community and driver expectations while accommodating existing and future developments. The project will incorporate multi-modal traffic facilities for pedestrians and bicyclists.

English Station Road is currently a Louisville Metro roadway. After construction is complete, the road will be accepted into the State Primary Road System with route number KY 3084 . KY 3084 will begin at the intersection with US 60 (Shelbyville Road), continuing along North English Station Road and Old Henry Road to the Oldham County Line. The entire corridor will measure 4.47 miles with US 60 being mile-point 0.0 to mile-point 4.47 being the Oldham County Line.  Item No. 5-353.00 will be mile-points 0.46 to 1.2 within the new KY 3084 designation.  A future project, 5-367.20, is planned to continue KY 3084 to KY 362 in Oldham County. More information on the project status can be found to the right under Supporting Documents.

 

Project amenities:

  • Shared-use (or multi-use) facilities for pedestrian and bicycles.
  • Traffic signals to be installed at two intersections:
