Public hearing set next month on ‘ReImagine Nicholasville Road’ plan

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) After more than a year of study, data collection and public input, a vision has been put forward for Nicholasville Road, one of Lexington’s most important corridors.

The result is a plan that focuses on safety and efficiency for people travelling by car, bus, bike or on foot. The recommendations are tailored to the unique areas of Nicholasville Road and include:

  • Innovative intersection improvements.
  • Plans for Bus Rapid Transit.
  • Future redevelopment of large parking lots and underutilized shopping centers.
  • Dedicated bike and pedestrian facilities.

This cohesive corridor plan is known as Imagine Nicholasville Road and is proposed to be adopted as part of the City’s comprehensive plan known as Imagine Lexington. It will guide incremental land use and transportation decisions for the next 20 years through future redevelopment, Planning Commission actions, Urban County Council decisions and public investment.

There will be a public hearing via Zoom for this proposal on May 20, 2021, at 1:30 p.m.

Community members with thoughts on the proposal that cannot attend the public hearing can email and comments will be passed along to the Planning Commission.
