Louisville Metro Council

The next public meeting to discuss a proposed change to traffic patterns on Northwestern Parkway is set for this coming Tuesday, January 11th at the Portland Library.
“This is an important meeting for motorists and residents who use Northwestern Parkway,” says Councilwoman Cheri Bryant Hamilton (D-5). “We had a very good turnout for last month’s meeting and I am sure there are many people with questions about making Northwestern Parkway more bike friendly.”
A proposal is under review to change the traffic flow of Northwestern Parkway, moving it from four to three lanes between 33rd and Bank Street. The change also calls for changing Northwestern Parkway from a one way to two way along this portion of the roadway. It will be a major change for drivers and residents in the area and public input on this change is critical.
The meeting is part of Metro Louisville’s Bike and Pedestrian Master Plan which is now being considered by Metro Public Works. It will be at the Portland Library, 3305 Northwestern Parkway. Officials will be on hand to explain the Master Plan and the next step in the process.
“The people coordinating this proposal need to hear from everyone in the community,” says Hamilton.
