Oldham County: I-71 New Interchange at Milepoint 20.6 - Project 05-483.30

alt 4.PNG


  • Improve connectivity, alleviate existing and future congestion in the LaGrange/Oldham County area by providing an alternative route to KY 53 and KY 393.
  • To reduce travel times and overall delay, improve safety by reducing exposure to identified high crash segments
  • Reduce emergency response times
  • Provide an “outlet” when I-71 is closed during an incident
​Project Scope
Construct a new interchange at mile point 20.6 on I-71 in Oldham County

​Project Overview
​In 2016, a bridge was constructed connecting Commerce Parkway with New Moody Lane.  Subsequently, the LaGrange Parkway was constructed from the south end of the bridge to KY 53.  The proposed interchange will be fully directional, sitting between the existing interchanges of KY 393 (Exit 18) and KY 53 (Exit 22). 
The project will connect I-71, a National Freight Network Highway, to public roads in the area, namely Allen Lane and Commerce Parkway to the north, along with New Moody Lane and LaGrange Parkway to the south. 
The existing I-71 overpass is five lanes wide with a shared used path on both sides.  
This project will:
  • Provide improved access to Oldham Reserve – a development to the southeast bounded by KY 53 and LaGrange Parkway.
  • Reduce congestion at the KY 53 interchange and on KY 53 for traffic going to Oldham Reserve, a hospital, and businesses.
  • Reduce northbound AM queue times onto I-71 at the off-ramp to KY 53.

Selected Alternative
This interchange combines the northbound ramps from Alternative 2 with the southbound ramps from Alternative 3. It avoids
property impacts within the Meadowbrook Estates subdivision and would not realign Commerce Parkway. New Moody Lane
access would be eliminated with this Alternative, shifting that traffic to future connections along Eden Parkway or Peak
Road. *See image above*

The project has let and been awarded (Project's Press Release)

Utility work will be ongoing with the project.

Work is scheduled to begin in October 2022. Signs in the area will notify drivers of the work, but they should heed any restrictions, proceed through the work zone with caution, or seek an alternate route. Motorists should expect lane shifts and lane closures on I-71 within the project limits.

Major construction is anticipated to be completed by late spring 2024.  A press release will be issued when the interchange will be open for traffic. 

​Public Input
