US 150 Project Between Bardstown & Springfield

(August 2021 Update) Nelson and Washington Counties:

  • Following public meetings and Hearings held from 2019 thru 2021, KYTC has evaluated public input, engineering considerations, environmental impacts, availability of funding, and other criteria and has made decisions regarding the advancement of the US150 corridor:
    • Nelson County – Alternative 2A, as previously presented to the public as the Preferred alternative, has been confirmed by the Project Team as the Preferred alternative to advance.
    • Washington County – Alternative 1, as presented to the public in April 2019 public meetings, has been identified by the Project Team as the selected alternative to advance.
  • A letter with additional information was mailed to all public that expressed interest in the project throughout the public involvement phase on August 10th, 2021:
  • Displays of the Preferred and Selected Alternatives are available below:
  • Next Steps:
    • Nelson County – Geotechnical field investigations will begin in September 2021. Environmental documentation is being finalized and expected to be completed by the end of 2021, at which time final design activities can begin. Additional funding for the project will need to be identified in the biennial budget by the KY General Assembly to complete final design and advance into Right of Way acquisition. The KY General Assembly meets next in 2022.
    • Washington County from Fredericktown Rd to Mayfield Ln – Right of Way acquisition funding is available in the current budget. It is anticipated a Right of Way informational meeting will be held for effected property owners in early 2022. At this meeting the final plans will be available for review and the Right of Way acquisition process will be explained. Invitations will be sent when that meeting is scheduled.
    • Washington County from Mayfield Ln to Springfield Bypass – Additional funding will need to be identified in the biennial budget by the KY General Assembly for this project to advance. The KY General Assembly meets next in 2022.
  • Materials from previous US 150 corridor meetings can be found further down this page.
