US 60 Montgomery County 7-8810.00


Purpose and Need

The purpose of this project is to improve mobility and safety along US 60 from the east end of the bridge near Bent Brook Drive to KY 686 (Mt. Sterling Bypass) intersection. This section of highway has little or no shoulders, inadequate sight distance and no provisions of turn lanes to access the myriad businesses, facilities and neighborhoods within this project area. The proposed project calls for the widening of US 60. The goals of the US 60 widening include:

  • Improve Safety.
  • Improve Traffic Flow.
  • Improve Horizontal Curves.
  • Improve Vertical Curves.
  • Improve Turning Movements.

The project team hope to have a preferred alternative selected by the end of the 2018 calendar year. Below you will find the current project scheduled dates per the current approved Highway Plan.

  • Final design is scheduled to be completed by July 2019.
  • Right of Way is scheduled to begin after July 2021.
  • Utility relocation is scheduled to begin after July 2021.
  • Roadway construction no earlier than July 2023.
