KY 1932 (Chenoweth Lane) Improvement Design - Project 05-531


Improve sight distance and safety for motorists, improve drainage along the corridor, and improve pedestrian safety and mobility. 

The goals for the design were to:

  • Confine improvements within existing KYTC-owned right-of-way
  • Minimize impacts on established mature trees
  • Maintain roadway character that reflects the existing traditional and historic neighborhood setting

​Project Scope
Safety and drainage improvements on KY 1932 (Chenoweth Lane) between CSX Railroad Crossing to US 42 (Project 05-531)

​Project Timeline
  • KYTC is acquiring the needed easements and completing the right-of-way process for the project. At this time, all remaining parcels are progressing through the state-mandated legal process. KYTC anticipates the right-of-way acquisition process to continue through the end of 2022.* 
  • Utility relocation will begin after all right-of-way is acquired. KYTC has estimated that the utility relocation process may begin in 2023 and will take approximately two years to complete (barring unforeseen delays, weather, etc.).*
  • KYTC anticipates letting the project to construction by the end of 2024; with a possibility of the letting process extending into 2025*

*Subject to change

NOTE: Once the right of way process is complete, all tentative dates for utility relocation and letting will be re-evaluated to correspond with available funding (provided in the upcoming enacted Highway Plan).

Items eliminated from the project are bioswales and landscaping elements.

All materials for Phase 2 design are located in the Links Section. 

Public and Stakeholder 
A public meeting was held in November 2017. Surveys were open to public comment until December 2017.

Citizens were given these options to select from:
  • Two alternatives for the urban typical from CSX Railroad to Massie Ave 
  • Two alternatives for a rural typical from Massie Ave to US-42 (Brownsboro Rd)  
  • A 'No-Build' or 'Do Nothing' option
