Discussing the Bardstown Road Safety Study with Councilman Coan

In December, District 8 Metro Council Member Brandon Coan and Develop Louisville released the Bardstown Road Safety Study, a 50-page document outlining a $7.4 million plan to remake the 4-mile stretch of Bardstown Road from Broadway to I-264.

Most notably, for the two-mile segment northwest of Douglass Loop, the plan calls for a sweeping redesign of the roadway: removal of the overhead “lane lights,” removal of parking restrictions at rush hour, the addition of turning lanes at eight major intersections, and more than a dozen pedestrian safety improvements like curb extensions and new crosswalks.

An ambitious design, these changes are intended to calm traffic at rush hour, reduce the number of crashes by having more predictable traffic movement, and improve the flow of traffic during non-peak hours.

Last week, B4L executive director Chris Glasser sat down with Coan to discuss the plan, the shortcomings of the current Bardstown Road design, and Coan's strategy for moving forward with funding and implementation.

Their conversation was published yesterday in Insider Louisville. Read here.
