The roads in Louisville, Kentucky include Interstates 64, 65 and 71, with an interchange in the city center. There are six U.S. highways serving the city. Two beltways surround Louisville.


Interstate highway Additional information
I-64 A major west-east interstate that enters the city's West End via the Sherman Minton Bridge from New Albany, Indiana where it becomes the Riverfront Expressway. The highway continues through Downtown Louisville, and proceeds eastward through Cherokee Park and the eastern suburbs.
I-65 A major north-south interstate that enters downtown from Louisville's Indiana suburbs via the John F. Kennedy Memorial Bridge (and exits to Jeffersonville, Indiana on the parallel Abraham Lincoln Bridge), continues southward to Louisville International Airport, and proceeds through the southern suburbs. I-65 is named Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Expressway through the city.
I-71 The highway has its terminus at the interchange with Interstates 64 and 65 in downtown Louisville and connects to Louisville's northeastern suburbs and bedroom communities in Oldham County.
I-264 The inner beltway, whose southern and eastern legs are named the Henry Watterson Expressway. The western leg between I-64 and US 31W/US 60 was originally called the Shawnee Expressway, but was renamed in 2010 as the Georgia Davis Powers Expressway.
I-265 The outer beltway originally named the Jefferson Freeway and renamed the Gene Snyder Freeway. Highway is also signed as Kentucky Route 841. This is the only Interstate route in the Louisville area to use the technically correct suffix of Freeway in its formal name, rather than the traditional, but misleading term Expressway. Now connected to I-265 in Indiana via the Lewis and Clark Bridge plus freeway segments on both sides of the Ohio River.
