Jefferson County: Intersection Improvements at Outer Loop, Fegenbush Lane, Watterson Trail, and Beulah Church Road – Project 05-122

05-122 project area.jpg

The primary scope of the project is to relieve the vehicle delay while considering the proposal's solutions concerning possible residential, commercial, environmental, and historical impacts. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet acknowledges the current delays and recognizes that the intersections are located in an area of Jefferson County experiencing significant development pressure.  
​Project Scope
The two major intersections of KY 1065 (Outer Loop)/Fegenbush Lane/Watterson Trail and Beulah Church Road/Fegenbush Lane are within 900 feet and converge on each other. They experience excessive vehicle delays during the morning and evening peak periods.
​Type of Project

Reconstruct the two intersections and the connection between them.

​Project Timeline

As of Winter 2023/2024 (SUBJECT TO CHANGE*):
  • Since the Public Information Meeting held in 2003, the project has been delayed (funding appropriation). And the project received a lower SHIFT ranking for the district; however, a right turn lane was constructed for southbound Fegenbush Lane onto the Beulah Church Rd. 
  • KYTC has acquired all necessary right-of-way, including the control of access rights when applicable, including legal and physical possession (As of August 2022)
  • Utility relocations may begin in 2028 according to the utility company's estimates. The utility companies anticipate at least two years to complete the full utility relocations.
  • KYTC anticipates construction starting no earlier than 2030.*
*The above project milestone dates are subject to change due to changes in funding availability within the next Enacted Highway Plan.

Elected Official Meeting / Public Meetings

An elected official meeting was held in September 2001, where preliminary engineering studies were used to develop project alternatives.

The first public meeting was held in May 2002 to discuss numerous issues, including the project's scope, existing conditions, design criteria, construction alternatives, historical and ecological considerations, and other relevant project information.  At this initial meeting, nine alternatives (labeled A-I) were proposed (developed from the elected official meeting mentioned above).

This meeting used an "open format" style, where the public could acquaint themselves with the various exhibits, preliminary design plans, and other pertinent information. Citizens were encouraged to provide feedback on the alternatives via a questionnaire. Questionnaire submissions were accepted until 15 days after the meeting date.

A second public meeting was held in November 2003. After receiving public input at the initial public meeting, the number of alternates under consideration was reduced from nine to three: Alternate A, H, and I. Based on the public input, Alternate "I" was moved forward as the recommended alternative, and the construction and right-of-way acquisition plans were developed.
