PROJECT OVERVIEW

Dixie Highway is one of Louisville’s most important transportation and development corridors.  It provides a critical link for the residents and businesses in southwest Louisville and is vital to the regional economy:

Providing access to jobs in downtown Louisville and the surrounding community including the U.S. Army base at nearby Fort Knox;

  • Connecting residents to educational institutions and medical centers;
  • Fostering redevelopment and job creation efforts;
  • Carrying thousands of transit riders and over 60,000 vehicles per day
  • Serving as a regional freight route 

The Transforming Dixie Highway Project was envisioned from the Dixie Highway Corridor Master Plan, taking several of the recommended transformational improvements and building consensus with the project partners on the current project components.  It includes three primary elements:

  • ITS / Signal System and Technology Upgrades;
  • Complete Streets and Safety/Access Management Improvements; and
  • Bus Rapid Transit (BRT)
