Crittenden Drive Relocation



Thanks to the support of the Commonwealth of Kentucky and Louisville Metro, construction of Phase I of the Crittenden Drive Relocation Project continues.


This roadway relocation project is necessary to allow for the construction of Taxiway "A," which is necessary to accommodate Group VI aircraft-the largest and newest long-range commercial aircraft.


As part of Phase I, the southern portion of the roadway will be relocated and a roadway (currently under construction) will be built over the CSX railroad tracks-connecting the Airport Industrial Center to Louisville International Airport.
