Louisville – Councilwoman Mary C. Woolridge (D-3) will give a special update on the “Quiet Zone” involving railroad improvements along Wilson Avenue and Cypress Street this coming Friday, February 21st at the next regular meeting of the Standard Avenue Block Club.
“This is a very important project that is a top priority for me and I have been working to make it happen over the last ten years,” says Woolridge. “This year we are on schedule to move forward with the safety improvements that are needed for many neighborhoods. I want to make sure everyone is aware of all aspects of this important project.”
The “Quiet Zone” is a proposed corridor that affects seven railroad crossings between Wilson Avenue and Cypress Street. It will require installing warning devices at the crossings while making improvements with regard to traffic flow and safety.
Jeff Brown, of Metro Public Works, is coordinating the project and will join the Councilwoman at the meeting to explain the time table of events as the project moves forward. Both District 3 and District 1 are helping fund the “Quiet Zone” along with the Norfolk Southern Railroad and Metro Public Works.
The meeting will take place at the LMPD Second Division Large Conference Room, 3419 Bohne Avenue from 6:00pm to 7:00pm. It is open to the public.
