Route description[edit]

Crossroads of U.S. Route 31E and Kentucky State Route 509 in Coxs Creek, Kentucky

KY 509 begins at an intersection with KY 245 near Samuels in Nelson County, heading north on two-lane undivided Samuels Loop. The route passes through rural areas with some development and intersects the southern terminus of KY 3207, at which point it turns east onto Samuels Road and immediately crosses a R.J. Corman Railroad line. The road continues through farmland with some woods and homes, curving to the northeast. KY 509 heads to the east again and comes to an intersection with US 31E/US 150 in Coxs Creek. Following this intersection, the route becomes Fairfield Road and continues through more agricultural areas with some trees and residences. KY 509 curves to the northeast and continues to its eastern terminus at an intersection with KY 48 west of Fairfield.[1][3]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Nelson County.
