Logan Street & Shelby Street Two Way Conversion
One-way streets can often be dangerous, especially for pedestrians, because they were designed to move cars as quickly as possible from one destination to another. According to Smart Growth America's Dangerous by Design 2022 report, pedestrian fatalities have increased 62% since 2009, with disproportionately higher fatality rates in minority and low-income neighborhoods, because the design of our streets prioritizes speed over safety. Two-way streets are proven to be safer and simpler for all road users, especially pedestrians.
Logan and Shelby Streets were identified as priority corridors for safety improvements in the 2021 state transportation budget. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) is utilizing this funding and additional federal funds to convert the corridors from one-way streets to two-way streets. Construction for the project will begin in 2023 and should be completed by the end of the calendar year. Please review the draft design documents below and submit any comments or ideas to the form.
