I-64 Interchange and Connector Planning Study for Jefferson/Shelby Counties - 5-80000

Image of Study Area​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) is conducting a planning study to consider the need for a new interchange on Interstate 64 (I-64) in eastern Jefferson or western Shelby County. The potential interchange would be between I-265 (Gene Snyder Freeway) and KY 1848 (Buck Creek Road) in Shelby County.​ 

This area has experienced considerable growth in recent years and is forecasted to continue growing. The two main needs driving the study are: to reduce congestion on the existing roadway network and to improve connectivity to I-64. ​
​Project Scope
The Scope includes a potential new interchange on I-64 between I-265 (Gene Snyder Freeway) and KY 1848 (Buck Creek Road) near the Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass. Potential routes connecting a new I-64 interchange to US 60 (Shelbyville Road) to the north and KY 155/KY 148 (Taylorsville Road) to the south will also be examined.​
​Type of Project
​Planning Study*
*In the 2022-2028 Enacted Highway Plan, only this Planning phase is funded. Additional funding to advance the project further will have to be secured in future Highway Plans.
