Louisville Metro seeking input on proposed two-way street conversions in west Louisville

February 12, 2021

Louisville Metro is developing plans to make safety improvements to one-way streets throughout the community. This includes converting portions of roadways for two-way traffic. Louisville Metro Council allocated $1 million in the Fiscal Year 2021 for the Neighborhood Safety Improvement Project. Chestnut Street/River Park Drive and Muhammad Ali Boulevard were identified as priority corridors for these safety improvements.

Louisville Metro Office of Advanced Planning and Sustainability is hosting a virtual public meeting from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 17, to discuss this project and hear feedback about the issues facing the Chestnut Street/River Park Drive and Muhammad Ali Boulevard corridors, as well as potential solutions. The meeting will also identify next steps for the Neighborhood Safety Improvement Project.

Residents can attend the virtual session by clicking the below link or calling 1-415-655-0001 and entering the below access code. The meeting also will be streamed live on Facebook at www.facebook.com/DevelopLouisville.

The Neighborhood Safety Improvement Project includes the possible two-way conversion of Muhammad Ali Boulevard and Chestnut Street/River Park Drive between 9th Street and Southwestern Parkway near Shawnee Park; upgrades to the Interstate 264 intersection to allow for two-way traffic and aide safe pedestrian movements; and traffic signal upgrades.

The project’s goals are to improve safety and accessibility for these streets. Converting one-way streets to two-way traffic increases visibility for businesses, ease of movement and safety by slowing traffic.
