PREVIOUS, RELATED STUDY: “The 2000 Study”

In December 2000, GRW Consultants prepared a report for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet entitled KY 237-Camp Ernst Road-KY 536 Corridor Improvements: Boone, Kenton, and Campbell Counties (Document 1 of 2 and Document 2 of 2). This document contains the culmination of all roadway improvement and environmental studies for this KY 237-Camp Ernst Road-KY 536 series of east-west roadways through Northern Kentucky.  “The primary objective of the project was to study and evaluate details of alternate roadway alignments such that a right-of-way corridor may be reserved for the appropriate roadway sections that will improve safety and provide adequate capacity for the year 2025 traveling public.”  As a result of this 2000 Study, preferred alternatives or improvement recommendations were developed for EVERY section of the corridor EXCEPT the section of KY 536 between KY 17 and the Kenton/Campbell County Line.  It is for this reason, to identify a preferred alternative for this final, missing piece of the puzzle (KY 536 between KY 17 and the Kenton/Campbell County Line) that the KY 536 Scoping Study is currently being performed. Please scroll down for information on segments of the KY 536 corridor which are outside of the current KY 536 Scoping Study area.
