Gate 1 Renovation Project

The Kentucky Exposition Center unveiled plans to improve access to the facility with a new and greatly improved gate one entry experience, to include wayfinding and the addition of lanes thereby increasing throughput of this gate by 25%. Beginning in March and finalizing in July, Gate 1 will be closed to incoming traffic and demolition will begin. Gate 1 exit will be unaffected by construction plans. You are recommended to use one of our 4 other gates located on Crittenden Drive and Preston Highway.
