KY 864 Beulah Church Road Widening - Project 05-481

​​KY 864.PNG

The Beulah Church Road (KY 864) corridor is a rapidly developing section of Louisville with increasing traffic demand. KY 864 is classified as an urban collector and has many access points. It carries traffic from growing residential suburbs to the Gene Snyder Freeway (I-265), with growth expected to continue. For instance, the Cooper Chapel Road extension (Project 5-404.01) to Bardstown Road (US 31E) will bring additional traffic to the route.

​Project Scope
Improve the access, safety, and mobility of Beulah Church Road south of the Gene Snyder Freeway.

​Type of Project
​Road Widening - Construction

​Project Timeline

As of Winter 2023/2024 (SUBJECT TO CHANGE*):

  • The final roadway plans are nearly completed.
  • KYTC has acquired all necessary right-of-way, including the control of access rights when applicable, including legal and physical possession.
  • Utility relocations will likely occur in 2028, before the roadway construction, with approximately two years of relocation work.
  • KYTC anticipates letting the project to construction in 2030. The construction letting date is to be determined.

*The above project milestone dates are subject to change due to changes in funding availability within the next Enacted Highway Plan.

Public and Stakeholder 
An advisory committee meeting was held in July 2013 to discuss numerous issues, including operational/safety concerns, right-of-way impacts, local streams, utility impacts, proposed roadway width, and pedestrian and bicycle use.  This advisory committee comprised elected officials, emergency service agencies, and neighborhood representatives. Information from the advisory committee was used to develop several design alternates for widening Beulah Church Road.

A second advisory committee meeting was held in June 2014.  KYTC staff and representatives of the project consultant firm (GRW) presented the preliminary engineering designs developed to date and asked for additional input from local officials and concerned parties. 

A public meeting was held in July 2014 to present three alternatives for widening Beulah Church Road between Cedar Creek Road and I-265.  Comments were accepted through August 1, 2014. The information presented at the meeting can be found in the LINKS section above.

Since the public meeting and comment period in August 2014, the funding to advance the project was authorized. KYTC has contracted GRW Engineers, Inc. to develop the final roadway design for the 1.6-mile improvements to KY 864 from Cedar Creek Road, north along a new alignment to the intersection of Beulah Church Road and Cooper Chapel Road, then continuing north along the existing roadway to Rocky Lane where the project ends just south of the I-265 interchange.  (See in the right column Suppor ng Documents: 5-481 Project Loca on Map (2016) & KY 864 Preferred Alternate Typical Sec on (2016)

In June 2016, the Notice to Proceed with this project was issued.  This notice is given to inform the design consultant that the project can begin the final engineering phase of this project.  The final engineering phase encompasses developing the final design plans and developing the right-of-way acquisition plans.
