The New Dixie Highway Project:
A better roadway for Southwest Louisville
The $35 Million Question: When Will it Be Done?
The $35 million New Dixie Highway project is on schedule and construction will be complete by the end of this year. That means that the medians, sidewalks, and crosswalks will be in place, the bus stations will be installed, and all the lanes will be open.
December is not usually the best time for final surfacing, final striping and landscaping, so that work is currently slated for Spring 2020. That kind of work will not be as disruptive to drivers, however. The New Dixie Highway Project broke ground in December of 2017.
“We really appreciate everyone’s patience as we work to make The New Dixie Highway – a safer, more attractive and efficient roadway,” said John Callihan, project manager. “We are nearing the finish line and soon we will be able to enjoy the new roadway.”
