LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Just before classes resume at the University of Louisville, the city will be resurfacing Fourth Street along campus to add bike lanes.

According to a press release, Metro Public Works planners will be holding meetings at U of L for citizens and students to hear about the plans and make comments.

The plan is to reduce collision rates on the roadway by reducing motor vehicle lanes to one in each direction with a bike lane in each direction. The road currently has two motor vehicle lanes in each direction.

Lanes will be changed between Cardinal Boulevard and Industry Road, and officials say it will reduce average speeds of the vehicles in an area with heavy pedestrian traffic.

The road will also be resurfaced.

The public meetings, led by Louisville Metro Public Works planners, will be held at the U of L Student Recreation Center, 2030 S. 4TH Street, Room 107.

Wednesday August 6 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Friday August 8 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
