Compare that to the Hill St project near UofL. We presented the idea to Public Works this past February, public meetings were held in March, and by April it was on the road. (Unbelievable!)
The effort behind the Jefferson project lies somewhere in between. We proposed the redesign in 2015 and watched as it steadily, over the next 18 months, made its way through the design phase, public meetings, and then finally to the top of a list of projects for the city to implement.
It’s great to see each of these projects hit the road now -- whether they took months or years to find their way there. Big shouts and thank you’s to Metro Public Works (particularly Rolf Eisinger at Bike Louisville) for the project management, to the teams at Gresham, Smith & Partners and Qk4 for their design work, and to Mayor Greg Fischer for the budgetary funding. They’re the folks who made these projects possible.
