Louisville Paving and Construction Heavy Highway began working on a new road in Oldham County between KY 2857 (New Moody Lane) and KY 53. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) awarded a $13.4 million contract for completion of this new four-lane parkway in LaGrange In January 2016. This route will connect with the recently completed I-71 overpass between Commerce Parkway and New Moody Lane. The road will extend a distance of 2.24 miles to KY 53 at Blakemore Lane (see map below). The driving lanes will be constructed with asphalt pavement. Pedestrian and cyclist facilities are included in the project via a 10-foot wide shared use path. This path will be built on one side of the roadway and connect with the existing greenway trail system on Commerce Parkway. The project is nearly complete with minimal pipe laying on the Nee Moody end of the project. All sidewalk and surface remains to be complete at the beginning of the construction season. Construction scheduled for completion in June 2018.
