Temporary Walkway on Main Street Pleases CART

A protest that was planned for this afternoon at Second and Main Streets in Louisville has been scrapped. CART – or the Coalition for the Advancement of Regional Transportation – had planned the protest because construction zones there had no temporary walkway for pedestrians, forcing them to walk in the street.

But CART Vice-President Dave Morse says such walkways were erected yesterday. He says while it comes a few weeks after the start of the project, it’s a welcome addition.

“We’d like to see this technique used more often,” says Morse. “We’d like to see this technique incorporated into the planning phase of a project, so that there’s never a time when pedestrians are wading out into the street.”

Morse says they would have liked to see wheelchair ramps for the temporary walkways, but understands the project is temporary.
