KY 1159 Reconstruction - Brooksville
to AA Highway
About the Project
The KY 1159 Reconstruction Project begins on the north side of Brooksville,
approximatley 600 feet south of Fronks Lane, and extends north to approximately
600 feet south of the AA Highway. The total length of the project is
approximately 3.4 miles.
The purpose of the project is
to improve the existing roadway geometry, safety, and connectivity from
Brooksville to the AA Highway. The existing road has narrow lanes, no shoulders
and numerous alignment deficiencies tht do not meet current design criteria.
Also, there are safety concerns associated with the 90 access points (8 approach
roads and 82 entrances) along this segment of KY 1159.
Preliminary design has been completed for two new
alternates. Both alternates include:
- A new 2-lane road for KY 1159 with 11' lanes and 8' shoulders. South of
Fronks Lane in Brooksville will have curb and gutter with 5' sidewalks.
- A realignment of KY 1159 around the east side of Bladeston area.
- Widening of KY 1159 to provide an 11' truck climbing lane on the steep grade
from the AA Highway.
