TAYLOR MILL, Ky. - The Taylor Mill Road Widening Project will cost an estimated $90 million and take years to complete.
The project started at the corner of Taylor Mill Road and Klette Road. It spans north 4.2 miles to I-275 and Taylor Mill Road.
The new Taylor Mill Road will be much straighter and have two lanes in each direction with turn lanes and landscaped medians.
Going from two lanes to five is not painless. Heavy construction and traffic has become second nature for drivers that use Taylor Mill Road on a day-to-day basis.
Nancy Wood, with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, said four schools and many more businesses and homes have made this project necessary.
"Improving traffic flow, there's been a huge growth impact out there in Taylor Mill," Wood said. "So it's keeping up with the numbers of cars and people living out there."
You can expect to see construction for years to come with a completion date estimated around the end of 2015 or the beginning of 2016.
Wood said that a mess now will lead to an asset for the community in the near future.
"You're going to have a great new road with great access. It's going to be aesthetically pleasing to your area," Wood said.
