At the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC), our job is to ensure our infrastructure meets the needs of our growing population and businesses. 

From planning to construction, every project is about improving safety, supporting jobs and economic growth, and providing better access for all who travel through our area. We know that providing safe and efficient connections supports our regional economy and keeps our communities strong. 

KYTC is studying various options for improving safety and connectivity between Jessamine and Fayette counties, but will not consider any improvement options that cross or impact the Kentucky River.


Specifically, the Jessamine-Fayette Connectivity Study will consider how to improve east-west connectivity in the study area and will examine current conditions related to safety and mobility in and between northeast Jessamine and southeast Fayette counties. The current study will not consider any connections or roadway improvements that would cross or impact the Kentucky River.
