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.
Over the past months, the project team has inventoried existing traffic volumes, studied crash patterns, and compiled community input. A series of spot improvement concepts have been developed to address identified needs. Check out the online, interactive StoryMap (https://bit.ly/3cOd2u3) for a review of the study findings to date, including a list of spot improvement concepts that have been developed.
The study began in late 2019. A meeting with local officials and stakeholders was held on March 26, 2020, followed by a public survey during the month of April to collect data about community concerns. The project team reviewed the data and developed improvement concepts, shared with local officials and the public in late July 2020. A final report is expected in late 2020. KYTC and local officials will be able to use the report as a roadmap to address needs along this section of the Hurstbourne Parkway corridor over time. This careful, data-driven approach helps to ensure that our limited resources will be used efficiently.
