Rowan County, Kentucky


Kentucky Transportation Cabinet


2005-2006 (Phase I)




CDP is preparing Phase I and 2 roadway designs for the 0.50-mile US 60 Bridge Replacement and approaches in Rowan County. This project is intended to provide a safe overpass of Hays Branch near the May Road intersection, and to improve local roadway utilization through enhancement of the existing roadway typical section and horizontal alignment deficiencies. The improved 2-lane roadway typical will facilitate two 12-foot driving lanes with 8-foot paved shoulders.  


  • horizontal alignment studies. Located along the project corridor is a historic home that played an important role in studying feasible and acceptable horizontal alignments, while meeting KYTC design policies.
  • vertical geometrics to meet design criteria while resulting in economical earthwork.
  • bridge over Hays Branch (structure design being provided by a subconsultant).
  • consideration of stream impacts to Hays Branch.
  • environmental studies and geotechnical services were provided by the Department.
  • drainage designs for open channels and bridge hydraulics.
  • final Right-of-Way and Construction Plans.
  • property owner information meetings to communicate the project purpose, scope and design elements to local residents.
