KY 864 begins at a junction with KY 2053 in southern Jefferson County. The highway begins as an urban secondary route from there to the junction with Interstate 265 (I-265, Gene Snyder Freeway). It then intersects KY 1065 (Outer Loop), and then has a short concurrency with KY 1747 (Fern Valley Road).
