Cumberland Parkway: Say "bye" to I-66, "hi" to an I-x65

<< < (22/22)

seicer:
Are there plans / maps out there now that show the location of the Parkway extension from Somerset?

That's interesting about the through movements. Does that mean that a future extension east along KY 80 is dead? Or that in the future both KY 461 and KY 80 could be four-laned? And what about I-66?

According to local media I've pulled up, part of the funding is a $25M BUILD grant.

In case you weren't aware, the project includes about 3 miles of 4-laning along 461 as well as an interchange on 461 at Valley Oak Dr/Pin Oak Dr.

seicer:
I had forgotten. I did find that KYTC has a map of the active projects which shows the alignment of the extension, along with plans for the four-laning: https://maps.kytc.ky.gov/activehighwayplan/?xmin=-9432928.711601421&xmax=-9384009.013498973&ymin=4447888.271183945&ymax=4470475.413042184

I wish KYTC would have websites for big projects like this and the US 127 realignment around Wolf Creek Dam.

I'm from Indiana and INDOT always makes good pages about projects.

There's been an industrial area along 461 north of 80 for decades. 461 was originally improved to just beyond those factories and I drove the old route a few times before the current alignment to I-75 finally got built.
