Supporters Launch Website safe42.org to Support

Brownsboro Road Sidewalk and Reconfiguration Project

 

WHAT:

Supporters of the Brownsboro Road Sidewalk and Reconfiguration Project – also known as the Brownsboro Road Diet – have launched safe42.org to explain and promote the safety and traffic benefits of the redesign. The project is expected to remove pedestrian and traffic hazards by adding a sidewalk on the north side of the road from Ewing Avenue to Drescher Bridge Avenue and reduce four lanes to three lanes – a travel lane in each direction and a center turning lane.

WHO:

This effort is supported by Brownsboro Road residents and organized by the Neighborhood Pedestrian and Bicycle Access Committee, a Joint Committee of the Clifton Community Council, the Clifton Heights Community Council, and the Crescent Hill Community Council. The access committee is joined by the Greater Louisville Council of the Blind to launch safe42.org.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

Neighbors of the Brownsboro Road Sidewalk and Reconfiguration Project invite you to visit our website safe42.org to learn more about this important pedestrian and traffic safety project. The project will bring to the neighborhoods on both sides of Brownsboro Road:  much safer pedestrian, bicycle, and car transit, a welcoming environment,more efficient traffic patterns, and a vibrant business community available to all.  The website answers those niggling questions you might have in the back of your mind, and if you do not find the answers, gives you the opportunity to “Ask the Expert”, Shawn Dikes, AICP, a professional in the transportation field for almost 20 years and Chair of the Transportation Committee for the Crescent Hill Community Council.

Construction of the Brownsboro Sidewalk and Road Configuration is slated to begin after the repairs on the Sherman Minton Bridge are complete.  Some businesses on Brownsboro Road and others have launched a last minute campaign to try to stop this important project.  If you are not familiar with this project, contact Cassandra Culin at kyspring@bellsouth.net for more information.  She is Clifton Chair of the Neighborhood Pedestrian and Bicycle Access Committee, a Joint Committee of the Clifton, Clifton Heights, and Crescent Hill Community Councils.

 

The Clifton Community Council has strongly supported a solution to the problem of pedestrian safety and access on Brownsboro Road between Ewing and Lindsay for over 12 years, and supports the sidewalk and reconfiguration plan developed by Metro Public Works.  We encourage you to support this project by:
