Construction on Polo Club Blvd

Lexington officials have stated that construction on the long-delayed section of Polo Club Boulevard from Deer Haven Lane to Todds Road will begin in summer 2019. On November 1, the Kentucky Supreme Court ruled in favor of the city of Lexington regarding the lawsuit filed in 2015 over the land needed to complete this project. The section is less than a quarter mile long. Once completed, Polo Club Boulevard will connect Winchester Road to Man O’ War, and Man O’ War to Todds Road.
