LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The University of Louisville is making way for its planned 39 acre research park. Monday afternoon, ground was broken for a $31 million road project to provide access to what will be the Belknap Engineering and Applied Sciences Research Park.
The project calls for a new road and two bridges to provide better access to the land that is bordered on three sides by railroad tracks. The U of L Foundation hopes construction will start in the fall and be completed in 2014. The research park may take 15 to 20 years to fully develop.
The U of L Foundation provided more than $6 million and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet provided nearly $25 million.
