Hurstbourne Parkway (KY 1747) Corridor Study

Untitled design (28).png

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) is conducting a corridor study for Hurstbourne Parkway (KY 1747) in Jefferson County, stretching 1.5 miles from Stony Brook Drive to the I‑64 westbound ramps. The study examines transportation needs related to safety and congestion, identifying practical short-term and long-term concepts to improve safety and traffic operations. The study area limits are shown in the map above.

Analysts are examining existing conditions data on geometry, traffic, and safety. Today, the highway carries 30,000 vehicles per day from Stony Brook Drive to Taylorsville Road (KY 155) and 55,000 vehicles per day from Taylorsville Road to I-64. High peak hour volumes contribute to low travel speeds, delays, and long queues during rush hour.

There were 811 crashes reported between July 2016 and June 2019—clustered at major intersections—with 56% of those crashes being rear-end collisions.

Before developing improvement concepts, KYTC would like to know how the Hurstbourne Parkway corridor works for you. Please take a few minutes to complete this survey(https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8WZ8HR5) to share your opinions.

The study began in late 2019. Since then, the project team has been gathering existing conditions data along the corridor. In addition, a webinar with local officials was held on March 26th to make sure their concerns were being captured. The project team is currently collecting concerns from the public through a survey link available at the website. Over the next several months, the project team will quantify all the corridor needs and develop potential strategies to address significant concerns. A public meeting and second round of local officials coordination is expected this summer, where those improvement strategies will be shared and discussed. A final report is expected in fall 2020. KYTC and local officials will be able to use the report as a sort of roadmap to address needs in the Hurtsborne Parkaway corridor over time. This careful, data-driven approach ensures we will be using our limited resources in the right places in the right order.
