I-65 Conceptual Improvements Study

Bullitt County/Jefferson County

KYTC Item No. 05-550.00

We Want Your Feedback!


The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) is conducting a planning study to identify and evaluate improvements to increase capacity, improve traffic operations, and address safety concerns along I-65 from Preston Highway (KY 61) in Lebanon Junction to the Gene Snyder Freeway (I-265) in Louisville, Kentucky.

The study is identifying short and long-term solutions to reduce congestion, enhance existing connectivity, and improve travel time reliability for this heavily traveled corridor.

Kentucky’s interstate system provides access to national and global markets. I-65, in this region, provides one-day access to well over 60 percent of the major domestic markets.  In 2020, widening the study area portion of I-65 from six to eight lanes was the 16th ranked project of statewide importance by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC).

The purpose of the I-65 Conceptual Improvements Study is to identify ways to reduce congestion, enhance existing connectivity, and improve travel time reliability along I-65 from Preston Highway (KY 61) in Lebanon Junction to the Gene Snyder Freeway (I-265) in Louisville.

The study began in early 2019, and a final report is expected in the middle of this year. The final report will document all actions and include an inventory of existing conditions, presentation of alternatives, and final recommendations.  Two meetings have been held with local elected officials to present and gather information as part of the planning study.  Now is Your Turn to be involved in this process. The StoryMap below was developed for this study summarizing existing conditions and preliminary improvement concepts. The StoryMap also includes an online survey.
