Planning study begins for crucial interchange near Louisville airport

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) has begun a planning study of the I-65/I-264 interchange in Jefferson County. The study will identify short and long-term solutions to address severe congestion, unreliable travel times and safety concerns for the heavily traveled area.

The interchange was prioritized by KYTC because it has the highest number of crashes in the Kentuckiana Regional Planning & Development Agency (KIPDA) region. The I-65/I-264 interchange facilitates movement throughout the Louisville Metro area including access to Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport, UPS Worldport, Kentucky Air National Guard, Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center and Kentucky Kingdom.

The planning study began in late 2019 with a final report expected in early 2021.
