LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Dozens of neighbors gathered to sound off about a plan to widen part of Hubbards Lane in a public forum, Jan. 29.
Metro councilmembers Tina Ward Pugh and Ken Fleming, who hosted Wednesday night's public forum, said the project is all about safety.
The project would widen Hubbards between Westport Road and Kresge Way near Brown Park.
Mike Sewell, who spoke at the event, says they're getting a lot of input from the public.
"My hope is that when we leave we have a beautiful project that functions well and that is more safe. It's kind of balancing act with all the comments we get and all of the data that says it's not safe now, and I think we will get to a safer configuration for the road," Sewell said.
Around 100 people showed up for tonight's meeting. The hope is to also improve bicycle and pedestrian accessibility along that stretch of Hubbards Lane.
