​Project Scope
  • Reconstruction of the I-264/US 42 (Brownsboro Road) interchange
  • Improvements to I-264 between Westport Road and I-71 interchanges
  • Widening of I-264 to provide three basic through lanes in each direction, as well as auxiliary lanes between interchanges. 
  • Two-lane ramps will be added from I-264 eastbound to I-71 northbound and I-264 westbound off-ramp to Westport Road
  • A two-lane on-ramp will be added at US 42 to I-264 westbound

​Project Timeline

As of Summer 2022 (SUBJECT TO CHANGE):

  • The final roadway plans are in development at this time.
  • KYTC is just starting the Right of Way phase and anticipates having ROW clearance in late 2022 or early 2023*
  • Utility relocation is likely to occur in 2024 prior to the roadway construction.
  • The construction funding is scheduled for FFY 2024 with a construction letting date TBD*.

*The above project milestone dates are subject to change due to changes in funding availability within the next Enacted Highway Plan.

​Public Input
A public meeting was held on July 24, 2014 to present three alternatives for reconstruction of the I-264/US 42 interchange.  Design plans were also shown for the widening of I-264, improvements to KY 22, and the addition of turning lanes at US 42 and Rudy Lane. Comments from the public meeting and questionnaire were accepted until August 8, 2014.
