KY 1039 meets Interstate 71 less than a mile in length.

Route description[edit]

KY 1039 begins at an intersection with KY 465 near Sparta in Gallatin County, heading south on a two-lane undivided road. The route makes a hairpin turn to the northwest and comes to a bridge over KY 465 before it comes to an interchange with I-71. Past this interchange, the road continues north through a mix of fields and woods with some development, coming to an intersection with KY 1130 (Speedway Boulevard), which provides access to Kentucky Speedway. KY 1039 continues north through more rural areas and comes to an interchange with US 42 west of Warsaw. Following this, the road crosses over the Ohio River on the Markland Dam Bridge. Here, KY 1039 comes to its northern terminus at the Indiana border, where it continues as SR 101.[1][2]
