Jefferson County: U.S. 60 Widening from Eastwood Cutoff (KY 2841) to Rockcrest Way - Project 5-8952

U.S. 60 1.jpg

Purpose
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. 
​Project Scope
Widen U.S. 60 (Shelbyville Road) from the Eastwood Cutoff to Rockcrest Way.

Potential Alternatives

Alternate 1A:  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.

Alternate 1B: 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.

Public and Stakeholder 
Input/Meetings
In March 2021, a virtual meeting was held with local officials from the City of Louisville, Jefferson County, and other stakeholders.

In May 2021, a virtual meeting was held for public input. Citizens were presented with project alternatives. An online survey was posted as a follow-up to the meeting, and survey responses were accepted up to 15 days after the meeting. 

The information presented at the public meeting can be found in the LINKS section above.
