Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Ground was broken May 5 on the long-awaited Seneca Loop extension shared use recreational path project, according to a news release.

Contractor Excel Excavating is working on the 2.5 mile addition to an existing 1.5 mile path to form a 4 mile loop around Seneca Park and Bowman Field. An existing path runs along Pee Wee Reese Road from Seneca Park Rd. south to Taylorsville Rd. and east along Taylorsville Rd. to where it ends at Dutchman’s Lane.

The $806,000 extension will run northeast along Dutchman’s Lane from Taylorsville Rd. to Cannons Lane, northwest along Cannons Lane from Dutchman’s Lane along the Bowman Field fence line to Old Cannons Lane. From there, it will run west along Park Hills Dr. and Seneca Park Rd. to connect with the northern end of the existing path at Pee Wee Reese Rd.

The extension will include a 10 ft. wide asphalt path intended for walkers, runners, and bicyclists along Dutchman’s Lane and Cannons Lane; shared lane markings along Park Hills Dr. from Old Cannons Lane to Seneca Park Rd.

A 5-ft. shoulder along each side of Seneca Park Rd. from Park Hills Dr. to Pee Wee Reese Rd. The project is scheduled for completion by the end of August.
