Lexington Road Reconfiguration 

Louisville Metro is implementing a roadway design reconfiguration to improve safety on Lexington Road between Baxter Avenue and Payne Street. This project is based on recommendations from the Lexington Road Corridor Transportation Plan that was created in 2015. 

The features of the reconfiguration include:

  • One travel lane in each direction for motorized vehicles. 
  • Reconfigured on-street parking to eliminate all restricted (signed and de facto) parking and to establish permanent (24-hour, daily) parking on the south side. 
  • A reconfiguration of the Lexington/Liberty Y-intersection to include a through travel lane in each direction to/from Liberty Street, a Left Turn Lane (LTL) to westbound Lexington Road, and reconfiguration of the eastbound Lexington approach to Liberty to square up the drivers to more easily view oncoming traffic to their left approaching from the railroad overpass. 
  • A two-way left-turn lane (TWLTL) approach to the Axis Apartments west of Payne Street. 
  • Convert Liberty Street, between Baxter Avenue and East Chestnut Street from a one-way road to a two-way road. 
  • For bicycles & scooters, an eastbound protected bike lane (cycle track) on the south side and a westbound conventional bike lane on the north side.
