U.S. 60 Widening from Eastwood Cutoff (KY 2841) to Rockcrest Way

U.S. 60 widening from Eastwood Cutoff (KY 2841) to Rockcrest Way

Jefferson County: KYTC Item No. 5-8952.00

Project Description 

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) is in the preliminary design phase of a project to widen U.S. 60 (Shelbyville Road) from the Eastwood Cutoff to Rockcrest Way. This project will improve operations and reduce congestion through a minor widening of U.S. 60 within the project limits. In addition to the widening, the intersections of U.S. 60/Eastwood Cutoff (KY 2841)/ Gilliland Road will also be improved. This project overlaps a portion of a Louisville Loop Project (being developed by Louisville-Metro) and will provide for continuity of the shared-use path.U.S. 60 1.jpg

Potential Alternatives

One alternate (Alternate 1A) under consideration involves Gilliland Road's realignment so that it lines up perpendicular to U.S. 60 at the intersection (forming a 'T' intersection). Highland Avenue will remain unchanged. There will be a slight offset between the two 'T' intersections on U.S. 60. The Eastwood Cutoff (KY 2841) will also be realigned (straightened) so that it intersects Gilliland Road south of U.S. 60 and forms a 'T' intersection with Gilliland Road. The Louisville Loop will cross Gilliland Road at U.S. 60 and then proceed southward along Gilliland Road's east side. The Louisville Loop will then cross the Eastwood Cutoff and proceed eastward to tie into the proposed path.

Another alternate (Alternate 1B) under consideration involves the realignment of Gilliland Road so that it lines up with Highland Avenue at U.S. 60 (each leg of the resulting intersection will be approximately perpendicular at this location). The Eastwood Cutoff (KY 2841) will also be realigned (straightened) to intersect with Gilliland Road south of U.S. 60 and form a 'T' intersection with Gilliland Road. The Louisville Loop will cross Gilliland Road at U.S. 60, and then proceed southward along the east side of Gilliland Road. The Louisville Loop will then cross the Eastwood Cutoff and proceed eastward to tie into the proposed path.

Virtual Local Officials Stakeholders Meeting

March 18, 2021 at 2:00 p.m.

A virtual meeting was held with members of KYTC District 5 and Central Office, as well as local officials from the City of Louisville, Jefferson County, and other stakeholders to discuss the subject project. The purpose of the meeting was to inform local officials and stakeholders of the start and goals of the project. The meeting was also held to gain input that may help guide the project development process.

Virtual Public Information Meeting

May 4, 2021 at 6:00 p.m.

This virtual meeting presented the latest alternatives that have been developed for the project to the public. A presentation was given describing the project and each of the alternates under consideration. A question and answer session followed. The meeting was split into half-hour segments, with the same presentation being given during each segment. Survey responses will be accepted up to 15 days after the meeting). 

Accommodations will be made for those that do not have the resources to participate in the virtual public meeting. The details for this in-person meeting will depend on the response received. The in-person meeting will be socially distanced, and attendance will be limited. This accommodation is only for those who do not have the capability to participate in the virtual meeting. This will afford everyone the same opportunity to hear the presentation and ask questions, no matter their situation. Requests for an in-person meeting will be accepted through close of business on Wednesday, May 5, 2021(The link to request an in-person meeting has been removed.)
