I-Move Update: Shelbyville Road traffic shifted back to original configuration

Expansion work overhead at the I-265 interchange moves forward

Shelbyville Road traffic returned to its original configuration near the I-265 interchange today. Bridge pier construction for the I-Move Kentucky project required traffic to be shifted for nearly three months to accommodate expansion work.

Traffic flows on Shelbyville Road near I-265.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is expanding this important segment of I-265 over Shelbyville Road from four to six lanes to improve safety and relieve congestion. Widening of I-265 between KY 155 (Taylorsville Road) and I-71 was identified as Kentucky’s top transportation priority by the Strategic Highway Investment Formula for Tomorrow (SHIFT) initiative developed by KYTC and included in the 2018 Highway Plan approved by the Kentucky General Assembly.

“Thank you to the public for their patience while we constructed bridge piers at this vital interchange,” said KYTC project manager Chris Slone. “This short-term inconvenience allowed us to make much-needed improvements to the roadway that will benefit motorists for years to come.”

Structural work continues on the bridge over Shelbyville Road leading up to beam installation, surfacing and the eventual use of the expanded roadway. That work may require short-term traffic impacts to be announced at a later date.

Work continues overhead to widen I-265 roadway.

I-Move Kentucky is the state’s innovative approach to improving the safety, ease of travel and quality of life for travelers and businesses that frequently use I-265, I-71 and I-64. Using a four-projects-in-one approach, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will be able to address some of its highest-priority transportation needs.
