LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- We're getting our first look at plans to widen a busy southwest Louisville roadway.

The city held a public forum at Doss High School Tuesday evening. Dozens of neighbors checked out the preliminary plans and weighed in on ways to ease congestion on St. Andrews Church Road.

Developers propose widening the road from two to three lanes in order to add a turn lane.

"That continuous center turn lane will allow for better access and then free flow for the other lanes of traffic," said Ky. Transportation Cabinet spokeswoman Andrea Clifford. 

The project is still years away.
