East River Road Widening
East River Road Widening

The River Road Widening project is a partnership between Louisville Metro Government and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) to widen River Road from 2 lanes to 4 lanes from Beargrass Creek to Zorn Avenue. This project includes new sidewalks, a new multi-use path, and a new light at River Road and Edith Road. The final design phase is complete, and construction is expected to begin in 2023. View the draft design documents and a virtual rendering of the project below.

Public comment period: The public is invited to provide feedback through May 30, 2024, regarding impacts to Champions and Eva Bandman Parks.

East River Road Widening Project

Additional project information: 

The East River Road Widening project is a partnership between Louisville Metro Government and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) to widen River Road from two to four lanes from Beargrass Creek to Zorn Avenue. The widening project includes the addition of a median, turning lanes, new sidewalks and multi-use path, and a new traffic signal at River Road and Edith Road.

The project will address the capacity deficiencies and operational issues that currently characterize the existing corridor and provide increased efficiency and safety for motorists and pedestrians. Additionally, the roadway will be constructed to be elevated above the 10-year floodplain to mitigate flooding and improve roadway safety following significant precipitation events. 

To proceed with the widening project, right-of-way, permanent utility easements, and temporary construction easements are needed from Champions and Eva Bandman Parks, both owned and maintained by Louisville Metro Government.

The right-of-way needed within Champions Park will not impact the recreational use of the soccer fields or newly constructed disc golf course. However, a closure of the gravel parking lot near the soccer fields may be necessary as construction progresses. Parking accommodations will be made once a construction schedule is developed and finalized. River Road's widening also requires removing the existing cart path adjacent to the roadway, which was retained as part of Champions Park following the closure of the Old River Road Country Club in 2007. Given the current condition of the cart path, the removal has received approval from Louisville Parks and Recreation. The widening of River Road near Eva Bandman Park will require a temporary closure of the unofficial entrance to the mountain bike trail. Though this access will be temporarily interrupted, all other access points will remain open through construction.

The public is invited to provide feedback through May 30, 2024, regarding impacts to Champions and Eva Bandman Parks.

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.

Louisville Metro Public Works 2024 Anticipated Construction RFP Schedule

Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL)

About 
In November of 2021, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) became law (Public Law 117-58, also known as the "Bipartisan Infrastructure Law". The BIL is the largest long-term investment in our infrastructure and economy in our Nation's history. It will provide $550 billion over 5 years, fiscal years 2022 through 2026, to invest in infrastructure, including roads, bridges, and mass transit. This money is not guaranteed to be sent directly to cities. For cities to receive these funds, they must compete in grant programs. Louisville Metro Government estimated that our city could receive up to $100 million from BIL and began planning for the spending of these funds. In FY23, Metro Council allocated $25 million in local funds that could be used as match for federal grants awarded by the BIL. 

Purpose 
Public Works & Assets is required to obtain Metro Council approval prior to appropriating any FY23 unallocated BIL Match funds for new federal BIL grants after January 31, 2024. Additionally, BIL Match funds may be used on BIL projects approved by Metro Council before January 31, 2024. Intention to use FY23 unallocated BIL Match for existing projects will be reported to Metro Council Budget Chairman and Vice Chairman within 10 days of the decision. The purpose of the BIL dashboard is to serve as a status report of all BIL funding projects.
