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 consisted of 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 alternates 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, and 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.

In June 2016, the Notice to Proceed for 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.
