Purpose
Improve traffic flow on Interstate 264, Interstate 71, U.S. 42, and Westport Road.

​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 and 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 U.S. 42 to I-264 westbound 
​Selected Alternative for Reconstruction of the I-264/US 42 (Brownsboro Road) interchange

​Project Timeline

As of Winter 2023/2024 (SUBJECT TO CHANGE):

  • Final roadway plans are in development 
  • KYTC has acquired all necessary right-of-way, including the control of access rights when applicable, including legal and physical possession.
  • LG&E has begun utility relocations, which will continue through 2024 and into the first quarter of 2025. Communication relocations will follow LG&E’s completion of the new pole route, which takes 6 to 9 months to complete. 
  • The construction funding will be distributed over three construction seasons. The construction letting date will be determined once utility relocations have progressed.​*

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

UPDATE - Noise barrier wall construction:

All the noise barrier walls will be installed when the project is let to construction (see above timeline). Locations of sound barrier walls can be found here: U.S. 42 I-264 Noise Wall mtg UPDATED 3-25-22.pdf 

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

A Noise Barrier Public Meeting was held on March 29, 2022, to inform the property owners and residents that during the preliminary design, it was determined that noise barriers are acoustically feasible and reasonable to construct in three locations on the project.
Properties identified as benefited receptors in the Traffic Noise Impact Analysis were notified (via mail). The letter provided a brief description of the project, the findings of the noise assessment, figures showing the location of the proposed barriers, and the purpose, date, and time for the Noise Barrier Information Meeting. 
Then, for a 30-day comment period, 126 comments/ballots were received from benefited property owners and residents. Both owners and residents nearly unanimously supported the construction of noise barriers.
