Public involvement starts May 20 for I-65/I-264 Interchange Planning Study

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) needs public input for a planning study of the I-65/I-264 interchange in Jefferson County.

The public can watch a short project overview video and fill out an interactive questionnaire to help identify problem areas of the interchange. Responses will be accepted May 20 through June 20.


The I-65/I-264 interchange had the highest crash rate in the region when ranked by the Kentuckiana Regional Planning & Development Agency (KIPDA), which serves as the metropolitan planning organization for Louisville Metro and eight surrounding counties.

KYTC initiated the I-65/I-264 Interchange Planning Study in fall 2019 to identify short-term and long-term solutions to increase safety, manage and reduce roadway congestion, ensure timely and efficient movement of freight, and decrease and/or mitigate negative environmental impacts to the interchange. Proposed improvements will address severe congestion, unreliable travel times, and safety concerns in the heavily traveled area.

The I-65/I-264 interchange facilitates movement throughout the region, including access to Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport, UPS Worldport, Kentucky Air National Guard, Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center and Kentucky Kingdom.
