Driving In London, Kentucky
London Kentucky, located in Laurel County along I-75, has a population of about 8,000 people. Several major corporations are located in London, including General Dynamics, Walmart, and Xerox. Although a growing town, London retains the essence of a small town: the buildings, the friendly atmosphere, and the proximity to the Blue Ridge Mountains. It’s been called the cycling capital of the state and has hundreds of hiking and cycling trails in nearby Daniel Boone National Forest. It’s been certified as a tree city and is dedicated to improving and preserving the sustainable forest.
The latter part of September sees an increase of about 150,000 visitors to the annual World Chicken Festival, which can cause some serious traffic congestion.
October sees a Civil War reenactment, and fishing, kayaking, and camping are popular attractions during the entire tourist season. London is a very popular tourist destination from early spring to late fall, which dramatically increases the vehicle traffic. Bicyclists, motorcyclists, and off-roaders contribute to the abundance of traffic. Uber isn’t available in London, Kentucky but cab service is available.
A roundabout installed at the intersection of KY363 and KY1006 has greatly reduced the number of accidents at this formerly hazardous location. It’s also eliminated a significant amount of rush hour backup.
US-25, which runs through London, is a AAA-rated semi truck route with an 80,000-pound load limit, so semi trucks are frequently seen in London. Magee Field is located about three miles south of London and offers aviation instruction and charter services. CSX Transportation provides rail service to London, so commercial traffic in this area may be denser than in other similar areas.
Downtown London, Kentucky has ample sidewalks and brick buildings, as befits a quintessential small town. There’s not an excess of stoplights, but there’s enough to keep traffic moving in an orderly fashion. Some of the on-ramps and off-ramps from I-25 are not clearly marked and may seem illogical. Ingress and egress to some of the shopping centers may require that you go to the next off-ramp and head back in the direction you came. While this may not be a major inconvenience, if you’re planning to go shopping, be sure to allow extra time.
London’s transportation department is busy conducting studies and planning for future road development. In the meantime, you should have your GPS or cell phone handy if you’re navigating this town.
In the high tourist months, you’ll find traffic congestion commensurate with the number of events and activities available.
