Debate over Brownsboro Road traffic continues

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The debate over traffic on a section of Brownsboro Road continues.  Despite several meetings with city officials, the group save42.org still believes reducing the four-lane section of road to two lanes plus a turn lane will hurt businesses and endanger the lives of pedestrians.

Wednesday they announced two alternatives just presented to Mayor Greg Fischer.  The group wants to put pedestrian lights at two locations around the Kroger store and make the middle turn lane reversible during rush hour.

James Dahlem of save42.org says, "That means we would be allowing morning rush hour traffic to have two lanes going into the city and then that would be reversed."

The group is also asking the Metro Council to adopt an ordinance that would require projects like this to have written notices sent to those affected, economic impact studies, and public meetings.
