NEXT STEPS

Louisville Metro Public Works & Assets used the results of this study to prioritize new sidewalk projects in their applications for Tranportation Alternatives (TA) federal funding. Two sidewalk projects listed in the Dixie Highway Access Study were selected for TA funds by KIPDA. Design on these projects is expected to begin in fiscal year 2022 with construction scheduled for fiscal year 2025.

  • Gagel Avenue Sidewalks
    • Construct a continuous 6-foot sidewalk on the north side of Gagel Avenue from Dixie Highway to London Drive, including a crossing at the P&L Railroad and an extension of the box culvert on the east side of the railroad tracks. Construct a crosswalk over Gagel Avenue at London Drive, then construct a continuous 6-foot sidewalk from London Drive to Manslick Road on the south side. This project will add approximately 6,235 linear feet of sidewalk.
  • Crums Lane Sidewalk Phase 1
    • Construct a continuous 6-foot sidewalk on the north side of Gagel Avenue from Dixie Highway to London Drive, including a crossing at the P&L Railroad and an extension of the box culvert on the east side of the railroad tracks. Construct a crosswalk over Gagel Avenue at London Drive, then construct a continuous 6-foot sidewalk from London Drive to Manslick Road on the south side. This project will add approximately 6,235 linear feet of sidewalk.

The remaining projects identified in the study that have not yet been funded will be submitted for federal funding consideration when KIPDA presents the next opportunity.

 

PROJECT HISTORY

The project was funded by Surface Transportation federal funds and is in direct correlation with the 2015 Dixie Highway TIGER discretionary grant project. The project studied four specific areas along the corridor and made specific recommendations to provide safe connections to Dixie Highway.

  • Valley Station Road from Dixie Highway to Stonestreet Road
  • Rockford Lane from Dixie Highway to Cane Run Road
  • Gagel Avenue from Dixie Highway to Manslick Road
  • Crums Lane from Cane Run Road to Manslick Road

Two public open houses were held in conjunction with this study. The first on August 11, 2019 at the Southwest Regional Library, and the second on November 11, 2019 at Shively City Hall. Please use the links below to see the open house materials.
