I-65 Corridor Study (I-264 to E. Jefferson Street)

I-65 Corridor Study (I-264 to E. Jefferson Street) Item No. 5-569.00569 Picture.jpg

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.

Study Objectives

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 be 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 results.

Current Status

Over the past few months, the project team has collected data and cataloged the information.  This information consists of items like traffic volumes, traffic travel times, crash or collision data, and environmental concerns in the study area. 

On December 1, 2020, a virtual meeting was held for local officials and key stakeholders.  This meeting initiated our first public outreach effort.  We encourage anyone interested to visit our online I-65 StoryMap.  The StoryMap provides study details and the opportunity to share concerns or comments.  This outreach effort will continue through January 15, 2021. 

Future Activities

A second public outreach effort will occur in the Spring of 2021. During this second outreach effort, we will seek the public's help in evaluating and prioritizing possible improvement strategies for I-65.
