Louisville – Dixie Highway is one of Louisville’s oldest commercial corridors and has recently undergone an effort to efficiently improve the flow of traffic. In the next several years, millions of dollars will be spent to give it a new look for those who live and work along the corridor.
Those efforts are the subject of the next District 12 Dialogue hosted by Councilman Rick Blackwell and set for Tuesday, November 12th at 7:00pm.
“We will have a briefing on the status of the recent light synchronization,” says Blackwell. “I will also have a representative of the Corradino Group to update us on the progress of Dixie Highway Master Plan.”
Pat Johnson, traffic engineer for the Metro Traffic Control Center, will be on hand to explain how the synchronization works covering 23 intersections over 11 miles of Dixie Highway in metro Louisville.
Just recently, the Corradino Group was awarded the contract for the first phase of the Dixie Highway Master Plan which will include improvements in safety; pedestrian access and a new look for this important hub in Southwest Louisville.
The meeting will take place at the Ormsby Heights Baptist Church, 2120 Lower Hunters Trace.
Blackwell has also invited representatives of LMPD, IPL and MSD, and Congressman John Yarmuth's office to be on hand as well.
