Highlands residents have until Friday to weigh in on proposed lane changes to Bardstown Road

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- One of Louisville's most congested roads could soon see major changes.

The city is thinking about removing the lane change signs on Bardstown Road, and time is running out to give your thoughts through an online survey.

The proposal could mean major changes to parking and how lanes are divided. One option is to remove lane change lights and allow two lanes of traffic each way during rush hour. Another proposal would allow parking on one side of the street and create a dedicated turn lane. The final option would be to allow parking all the time expect near intersections where dedicated turning lanes would be added.

Metro Councilman Brandon Coan is encouraging people to give their input.

"What this plan proposes is to put in 14 new dedicated left turn lanes at each of the signalized intersections so that people turning left don't hold up traffic anymore and then to have parking in the parking lane all the time and one lane of straight traffic all the time," Coan said.

Tyler Stiebling, who has lived in the Highlands for 10 years, said Wednesday he's unsure which plan he prefers.   

"The turning lanes are certainly gonna make things a little clearer for people driving," Stiebling said. "Probably improve safety."

If you want to submit your thoughts through the online survey you have until 5 p.m. on Friday. To take the survey, click here.
