KY 1932 (Chenoweth Lane) Planning Study & Improvement Project

​KYTC Item No. 5-531

 
KY 1932 (Chenoweth Lane) planning study 2015-2016
 
 
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) conducted a planning study to identify and evaluate potential improvements for KY 1932 (Chenoweth Lane) between US 60 (Shelbyville Road) and US 42 (Brownsboro Road).
 
Updated Study Purpose: The purpose of the KY 1932 (Chenoweth Lane) project - from the CSX railroad crossing (just north of US 60) to US 42 (Brownsboro Road) - is to (1) improve sight distance and safety for all users; (2) improve drainage along the corridor; and (3) improve pedestrian safety and mobility.
 
The study will:
 
·         Analyze existing and future conditions including traffic/capacity, environmental overview, crash analysis, and bicycle and pedestrian safety and connectivity. 
·         Establish a “vision” for the growth of the corridor.
 
A public meeting was held on November 16, 2015 as part of the Public Involvement component of the study. The second public meeting took place on February 29, 2016.  Both meetings were held at Broadway Baptist Church, 4000 Brownsboro Road. The second meeting provided the public an opportunity to comment on potentional improvement options including sidewalks, turn lanes, drainage improvements and bicycle facilities.

KY 1932 (Chenoweth Lane) improvement project - 2017
 
The purpose of the KY 1932 (Chenoweth Lane) project from the CSX railroad crossing to US 42 (Brownsboro Road)  is to 1) improve sight distance and safety for all users, 2) improve drainage along the corridor and 3) improve pedestrian safety and mobility. The 2015-2016 planning study for Chenoweth Lane recommended sidewalks and drainage improvements along the full corridor from the CSX railroad crossing to US 42 (Brownsboro Road). Between the railroad and Massie Avenue, urban curb and gutter is recommended for this section of roadway. Between Massie Avenue and Brownsboro Road, the roadway would remain a more rural concept with improved ditches. Two alternates for accomplishing these improvements are shown in the document titled "Chenoweth Lane Alternates 2017" which is located to the right under Supporting Documents.
 
Photos of existing intersection and sidewalk conditions as well as renderings of proposed improvements are shown in the document titled "Before and After Features." The proposed drainage improvements are shown in the document titled "Special Drainage Features."
 
A public meeting was held on Thurs. Nov. 30, 2017 at Broadway Baptist Church, 4000 Brownsboro Road. Displays from the meeting are provided to the right under Supporting Documents.  Those unable to attend can take our project survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ChenowethLane. This survey will close on December 14, 2017.
