Pleasant Valley Rd. (KY 237) was widened from Valley View Dr. to Rogers Ln. A 3.1-mile section of the roadway was widened from two to five lanes – two lanes in each direction with a center turn lane – with a multi-use path on both sides.
A roundabout was built at the intersection of Pleasant Valley Rd. and Camp Ernst Rd.
Curb and gutter improvements, as well as storm sewer and drainage work, were completed as part of this project.

This project is completed.
Traffic was in its final configuration by the end of 2021, with final work wrapping up in 2022.
much will the project cost?
The construction cost is expected to be approximately $22 million.
