I took a look at those maps and, wow, that’s totally overwhelming. I definitely don’t have time to make sense of all of it. Can you tell me what you think of the plans?
Sure! Here are some thoughts:
Louisville Metro Government is moving forward with a number of good projects that will be great for walk- and bikeability in downtown Louisville: two-way conversions in NuLu, a redesign of Market Street, a revamping of the Story/Main intersection. Metro is also leading efforts to redesign the Olmsted Parkways system, which could be amazing.
Unfortunately, the vast majority of the funding in the two plans (we’re talking like 99%) is slated to go to expensive highway projects that will further suburban sprawl. KYTC, the state transportation agency, is responsible for most of these kinds of projects in the plans, though Metro Government has its hands in some as well.
