Public input on the draft TIP is sought from July 16 until August 15 2020.

Citizen input helps us prioritize transportation projects that will be programmed for funding over the next four years.  The MPO uses this project listing to implement our region’s long-range Metropolitan Transportation Plan.  These projects are intended to support our community goals for improving safety, efficiency, equity, mobility and connectivity for all people in our region whether traveling as pedestrians, by car, bicycle or bus.


Projects proposed to advance over the next four years include:


  • Curbs, gutters, sidewalks and bikeways on Liberty Rd and North Limestone
  • Safety and congestion improvements along Richmond Rd
  • Sidewalk improvements on Rosemont Garden, Wilson-Downing, Lane Allen, West Loudon & Armstrong Mill
  • Improved safety and bicycle/pedestrian connectivity at Forbes Rd/Red Mile Rd/Virginia Ave and UK’s campus
  • MPO’s Bottleneck Study and Imagine Nicholasville Road transportation and land use plan
  • Public transit funding and the replacement and expansion of Lextran buses
  • Studies to extend a major trail corridor from between downtown Lexington to Jessamine County and to connect the Town Branch Commons eastward to the Brighton Rail Trail in Hamburg
  • Extensions of Fieldstone Way from the Beaumont Library to Snaffle Rd & the continuation of Citation Blvd from Winburn Dr to Russell Cave Rd
  • Initial design work for a new road under I-75 from Polo Club Blvd to Sir Barton Way
  • Completion of the Town Branch Trail and South Elkhorn Trail, and new trail project along Alumni Drive.
  • Improvements to New Circle Road, Newtown Pike and the I-75/I-64 ‘Common Route’ in Fayette County.
  • Replacement of the L&N Railroad Bridge on North Broadway, including bicycle and pedestrian facilities


  • Completion of the East High & West High Shared Use Trails
  • Improvements to Brannon Road and Ashgrove Pike
  • Completion of the Eastern Nicholasville Bypass between KY 39 and KY 169
  • Safety Improvements to the Wilmore “Y” Intersection of KY 29 and US 68
  • Continued bridge maintenance and interstate paving projects

Keep in mind, the TIP is not necessarily a construction timeline –  it is a financial program for scheduling and obligating federal funds. Additionally, as projects and programs are developed over the years, amendments and modifications are often necessary to reflect changing conditions, costs and schedules. An amendment and modification process is provided to facilitate these changes. Major changes are accommodated through an “Amendment” process. Minor changes are accommodated through an “Administrative Modification.”
