Transportation plan to be discussed at Jeffersonville meeting tonight

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- KIPDA, the federally funded transportation planning agency for the Louisville metro area, will hold an open house tonight in Jeffersonville, Ind. to receive comments on a draft of its Horizon 2035 Metropolitan Transportation Plan.

The meeting is from 4 to 6:30 pm at the Ken Ellis Center, 1425 Pennsylvania Ave., 47130. A second open house will be held in Louisville on Thursday from 4 to 6:30 pm at the Highlands/Shelby Park library branch at 1250 Bardstown Road, 40204.

The 600-page transportation plan describes dozens of road projects in Jefferson, Bullitt and Oldham counties in Kentucky and in Clark and Floyd counties in Indiana. It also includes plans for alternative transportation, like completing the Louisville Loop bike and pedestrian path around Jefferson County.

KIPDA officials are also seeking public input on drafts of their Participation Plan and 2015-2018 Transportation Improvement Plan. All three plans will be addressed at the open houses.

The plans can be viewed at http://www.kipda.org/transportation/drafts.aspx or at public libraries in Jefferson, Bullitt, Oldham, Clark and Floyd counties.
