London Ranger District Office Reconstruction

We're getting a new office!

The London Ranger District Office Compound, located at 761 S. Laurel Road in London, KY, will be demolished and completely reconstructed to make way for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s planned widening of U.S. Highway 25. The new office compound, to be constructed on the same site, will include increased accessibility features, additional restroom facilities and support the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service’s sustainability goals by achieving LEED Silver or higher. 

Demolition and construction of the new London Ranger District Office is slated to begin in 2022 and will take place over the next two to three years. During this time, District staff will continue to provide visitor services from a shared workspace at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Laurel Dam Resource Manager's Office along Highway 1193 between Holly Bay Recreation Area and Laurel River Lake Dam and Spillway Beach area.
