KY 1172 (Red Devil Lane)

Ashland, Kentucky

DLZ was commissioned by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet to design an urban roadway within the city limits of Russell, Kentucky that provided two lanes and a continuous left turn into three schools within the Greenup County school zone. The existing roadway was a rural, two-lane road with inadequate sight distance.

The design required accommodating existing entrances to all of the schools along the route, correcting an 18 percent grade, and minimizing the impact to an adjacent cemetery. The project required utility location for sanitary sewers, gas lines, water lines, and coordination with local school officials.
