The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC), in partnership with Louisville's Metropolitan Planning Organization – the Kentucky-Indiana Regional Planning and Development Agency (KIPDA) – is conducting a planning study on a corridor of I-65 between I-264 and E. Jefferson Street in Louisville, Kentucky.
The objective of the I-65 Corridor Planning Study is
to identify short-term and long-term improvements that KYTC may use for further
development and implementation. The study examines I-65 from I-264 (Watterson
Expressway) to East Jefferson Street in downtown Louisville (MP 131 to MP 136).
The study activities include, but are not limited to, an inventory of existing
conditions, establishing study objectives and goals, proposing and analyzing
improvement concepts, conducting public involvement, prioritizing improvement
concepts, and writing a technical report to document the study process and
On May 6, 2021, a second virtual meeting was held for local officials and key stakeholders. This meeting presented key project milestones, including: Phase 1 Public Engagement Overview, StoryMap Updates and Improvement Concepts Overview. The project team also provided a platform to continue our public outreach efforts. We encourage anyone interested to visit our online I-65 StoryMap. The StoryMap provides study details and access to the survey which gives participants the opportunity to share concerns or comments.
As a continued effort to expand our outreach to increase public awareness and engagement, the project team has created Project Information Flyers that will be distributed throughout various neighborhoods along the corridor. The flyers will also be circulated to churches and social organizations in the area, and on UofL's main campus. This effort is to increase the diversity of respondents, which will ultimately provide the project team with a broader base of feedback that will ensure our recommendations are inclusive of the entire community's views.
Project Information Flyers contain project updates, direct URL access, and QR Code-enabled access to the project website and StoryMap for survey participation. This outreach effort will continue through June 4, 2021.
