Nine miles of roadway along KY 55/KY 155 that connects Spencer and Jefferson counties has had a substantial increase in commuter traffic due to population shifts from city to suburban and rural areas.
The KY 55/KY 155 project aims to develop a complete roadway that can accommodate the current and future demands of commuter traffic. The need is to develop an alternative that increases capacity, decreases congestion, and provides roadway system completeness for a better commuter experience without sacrificing safety.
The goals for the project are to minimize right-of-way, utility, and environmental impacts.
This type of roadway configuration is known as a 2+1 road in transportation parlance. To find out more about 2+1 roadways, click HERE.
