The New Dixie Highway Project:
A better roadway for Southwest Louisville

Major Construction is Done; Rapid is Running: What's next?  

The major construction phase of the $35 million New Dixie Highway project is complete and the Rapid - Louisville's first BRT - is running.

What do we mean by "major construction phase?" That means the medians and sidewalks are in place, 36 new bus shelters are installed, and all the lanes are open. This means many of the benefits of the project are already being experienced along the corridor.

The New Dixie Highway Project team will continue to monitor traffic flow and assess signaling and signage updates as motorists acclimate to the new traffic patterns. In the spring, the final surfacing and striping will be put into place, requiring short-term lane closures.

(Read about all the progress on The New Dixie Highway project here in the newsletter.)

Video: U-Turns

The New Dixie Highway Project will add medians that will improve safety and limit mid-block left turns. To reach some destinations, people may have to use U-turns. This video shows how that works at a similar project.
