Route description

KY 47 begins at an intersection with KY 36/KY 467 in Sanders, Carroll County, heading north as a two-lane undivided road concurrent with KY 467. The road crosses a CSX railroad line before KY 467 splits to the northeast. KY 47 continues north through areas of homes before it leaves Sanders and heads into woodland. The road curves to the northwest and heads north-northwest through a mix of farmland and woods. The route crosses into Gallatin County, where it intersects the western terminus of KY 465 before passing under I-71 without an interchange. KY 47 heads back into Carroll County and comes to an intersection with the southern terminus of KY 184, at which point it runs to the northwest through forested areas. The road heads west through fields and woods before intersecting the northern terminus of KY 2984 and curves to the northwest, becoming Main Cross Street. The route winds west through more rural areas before heading to the north into forests and intersecting the eastern terminus of KY 1112. KY 47 passes through more farm fields and woodland before crossing a CSX railroad line and heading into Ghent. The route runs past homes and businesses before it ends at US 42.[1][2]
