  LOUISVILLE - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) announces activation of a new traffic signal at the intersection of US 31E (Bardstown Road) and Broad Run Parkway in Jefferson County. 

The signal is scheduled to be turned on flash mode Wednesday, Jan. 3 in an effort to make motorists aware of the new traffic conditions. The signal will flash yellow for traffic on Bardstown Road and red for traffic on Broad Run Parkway.

The signal will be tested and timing adjusted this week.  Weather permitting, traffic engineers plan to change the signal from flash to normal operations the week of Jan. 8.

This signal installation is part of a project for intersection improvements at the entrance to Broad Run Park, a section of The Parklands of Floyds Fork. In the fall of 2017, a right turn lane was built on US 31E North at Broad Run Parkway. Another right turn lane was built on westbound Broad Run Parkway to US 31E North. The existing left turn lane on US 31E South was lengthened to provide more vehicle storage capacity.

The date and duration of this work may be adjusted if inclement weather or other unforeseen delays occur.  Visit goky.ky.gov for the latest in traffic and travel information in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.  You can also get traffic information for the District 5 counties at facebook.com/KYTCDistrict5 and twitter.com/KYTCDistrict5.
