The Brownsboro Road Sidewalk Project is under construction. This is Lousiville's first "Road Diet" where the number of travel lanes were reduced in favor of pedestrian safety. The project has been under study for over a decade, led by neighborhood walking and biking activists and the Blind Community which has a significant presence in Clifton. At issue was the lack of pedestrian links to traverse along busy Brownsboro Road to safe crossing. The north side of the street lacked sidewalks for several hundred yards - opposite the Kroger grocery, CVS, and several eateries. The north side of the road is high density residential, leaving many residents, and often children, scrambling to cross safely without access to lights or crosswalks. Blind residents were particularly disadvantaged.
Bud Hixson does not like the way KIPDA is handling the region's transportation planning process.
