KY 425 begins at an intersection with US 60/KY 136 west of Henderson, heading southeast on the two-lane undivided Henderson Bypass. The road passes through farmland with some development and comes to a bridge over an abandoned railroad line. The route curves east and comes to an intersection with US 41 Alt. KY 425 passes through more agricultural areas to the south of Henderson and intersects KY 1299. The road comes to a bridge over a CSX railroad line and crosses US 41/KY 136. The route curves northeast and widens into a divided highway as it comes to its eastern terminus at an interchange with the Pennyrile Parkway (future I-69).
The highway was built in the 1980s, and in the intervening years has undergone occasional repair and maintenance work. Sufficient right-of-way exists to expand the road to four lanes, but there are no firm plans to do so.
The entire route is in Henderson County.
