Kentucky Route 136 (KY 136) is a 32.342-mile-long (52.049 km) state highway in northwestern Kentucky. It has two disconnected sections, one that goes from the Ohio River near Sloughs Wildlife Management Area to the Green River near Rangers Landing via Henderson, and the other that runs from KY 56 in Beech Grove west of Sebree to U.S. Route 231 (US 231) north of Hartford via Calhoun and Livermore.

Route description

Northwestern segment

KY 136 begins in northwestern Henderson County near a landing of the Ohio River opposite Mount Vernon, Indiana. Heading southeast, it turns to the east at Smith Hills. After going through Geneva, it begins a brief concurrency with US 60 to head into the city of Henderson. It then turns onto the old alignment of US 41 heading south to begin a brief concurrency with the mainline US 41 south of Henderson. It leaves US 41 at Anthoston. KY 136 traverses the Niagara community at its Kentucky Route 416 junction before ending its first section at Rangers Landing.

Southeastern segment

At Beech Grove, KY 136 has a junction with KY 56. KY 136 heads southeast to the cities of Calhoun and Livermore before entering Ohio County. Its eastern terminus is at US 231 just north of Hartford.


The two sections of KY 136 connected via a tolled ferry crossing of the Green River at Rangers Landing, and ran concurrency with KY 56 from Corner to Beech Grove.[2][3] Although ferry service was discontinued by 1968, road maps still mark KY 136 as running from Rangers Landing to Beech Grove.[4]

KY 136 also connected to Mount Vernon, Indiana, via a tolled ferry on the Ohio River,[5] which was decommissioned by the beginning of the 1950s
