KY 402

On July 18, 2002, 18.859 miles of KY 80 between KY 58 at Brewers and US 68 at Aurora in Marshall County were redesignated KY 402. This action was taken to free up the KY 80 designation for the new four lane highway under construction between Aurora and Mayfield.

See the KY 80 page for more information.

New section of KY 80 to open in Western Kentucky
Posted: 3-Nov-2009 10:30PM CST

The final section of the newly construction four-lane route for KY 80 between Aurora and Mayfield will open soon. The new KY 80 runs further south than its original routing and crosses US 641 closer to Murray than the original route. KY 80's original route has been signed as KY 402 for several years. The opening of the new route will once again make KY 80 a continuous route.

New Section of KY 80 to Open in Jackson Purchase
Posted: 17-Oct-2004 8:33AM CDT

The recently created gap in KY 80 will be one step closer to closure on Thursday when an 8-mile section of newly constructed highway opens in Marshall and Calloway Counties. The new section of highway will complete the new four lane highway between Aurora and US 641 north of Murray. The new roads will be signed as KY 80.

Formally, KY 80 followed a two lane road between Aurora and Mayfield. That road has been renumbered as KY 402.

The next phase of the KY 80 widening project will be to construct a new highway between US 641 and Mayfield.

Reconstruction of Kentucky 80 between Cadiz and Mayfield Progresses
Posted: 21-Feb-2004 9:41PM CST

Funding to continue the reconstruction of KY 80 is included in the new Six-Year Highway Plan. The project to widen KY 80 between Cadiz and Mayfield is broken up into three phases.

  • Phase 1 - Aurora to Murray - Construction on this phase of the project is nearly complete. It begins at the approach to US 68-KY 80 bridge over Kentucky Lake and continues westward to US 641 a few miles north of Murray. Construction started several years ago and should be complete this summer.
  • Phase 2 - Murray to Mayfield - Construction on this phase was recently begun. This $60 million will construct a new four lane highway between US 641 north of Murray to Mayfield. Construction is expected to last for a couple of years.
  • Phase 3 - Cadiz to Aurora - The Six-Year Plan includes $132 million to construct new four lane bridges over Kentucky Lake and Lake Berkeley. Construction on the bridges is scheduled to begin in 2006. Work on the widening project through the Land Between the Lakes has been delayed: the Tennessee Valley Authority gave initial approval for the project; however, ownership of the Land Between the Lakes has since been transferred to the United State Department of Agriculture forest service. Plans for the widening project are expected to be complete this summer, and construction is scheduled for completion in 2007.

The existing two-lane stretch of KY 80 between Aurora and Kentucky 58 east of Mayfield has already been renumbered as KY 402.
