Kentucky Awarded $67.5 Million to Transform Interstate Interchanges

One of Kentucky’s most heavily traveled freight corridors will be revitalized thanks to a $67.5 million INFRA grant awarded to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) for I-71/I-75 interchange improvements in Boone County. Kentucky’s project is one of 26 projects issued the grant by the U.S. Department of Transportation to address critical issues facing the nation’s aging infrastructure.

The project will improve mobility for those who live and work in the area by converting both the existing KY 338 diamond interchange and the existing KY 536 diamond interchange to double crossover diamond interchanges and by reconstructing the existing U.S. 25 and KY 338 intersection to a single-point urban interchange. Safety improvements and traffic delays will be addressed by eliminating two at-grade rail crossings and constructing an overpass railroad bridge for the Norfolk Southern line.

The total future estimated cost of the project is $150.9 million. In addition to the INFRA grant, a combination of traditional state and federal funds, as well as local Boone County Fiscal Court funds and private funds, will pay for the remainder of the project.

Project improvements include:

  • Replacement of the existing conventional diamond I-71/I-75 interchanges at KY 338 (Richwood Road) and KY 536 (Mt. Zion Road) with double crossover diamond (DCD) interchanges. These improvements eliminate bottlenecks and improve safety;
  • Reconstruction of the intersection of U.S. 25 and KY 338 just east of the I-71/I-75 interchange with KY 338 to construct a Single Point Urban Interchange (SPUI), eliminating two at-grade rail crossings;
  • Construction of northbound and southbound auxiliary lanes along I-71/I-75 north of the KY 536 interchange (MP 178.039 to MP 180.06); and
  • Construction for portions of the project will begin in 2019. The estimated completion for the entire project is the winter of 2021.

We stopped at Shiloh Steakhouse for the first time a few days ago. Good food, service and atmosphere. Prices were reasonable too.

I had the Sirloin Tips and my hubby had the Ribeye, both were delicious and cooked to our liking. We would return if ever passing thru here again.

New I-75 Exit Now Open in Kentucky

Motorists traveling on Interstate 75 in Scott County now have a new option to access a major connection point between the Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky facility and Georgetown. The result also will alleviate congestion, spur economic development and improve access for the tens of thousands of travelers in the area daily.

The new I-75 interchange at Exit 127 is open to traffic. The new interchange, just south of the I-75 northbound rest area, connects KY 32 (Champion Way) and US 62 (Cherry Blossom Way) via the Toyota Access Road.

While the interchange is now open to traffic, crews will resume work in the spring when weather conditions are more favorable to complete final surfacing and grading. The installation of lighting at the interchange will continue through the winter. Currently, technicians have focused on installing traffic signals in the area.
