Public Meeting To Be Held On Downtown Traffic Plan

by Gabe Bullard on October 12, 2009

The Louisville Downtown Development Corporation will host a public meeting Monday to get input on possible changes to downtown streets.

Downtown Projects Coordinator Rebecca Matheny says The Corporation is working on a long-term plan that would turn some one-way streets into two-way streets.

“Shelby and Campbell on the east side of downtown,” she says. “7th and 8th on the west side of downtown. We also think a number of the east-west streets make sense.”

Matheny says changing traffic flow on could enhance development on one-way streets and it could make downtown driving more efficient. Public comments on the plan will be taken during the meeting at Louisville Slugger Field. The meeting will be held from 3:30 until 7.

I don’t see how two-way streets will make anything more efficient.

If they’re trying to slow traffic down or reroute it, then they just need to say that. “Efficient” doesn’t make sense. Anyone who has tried to drive on 2nd St., 4th St, or Oak St will know that from experience.

Additionally, I think two-way streets will make it more dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists.

I hope citizens come out to the meeting and voice their concerns.
