Approximately 75 supporters gathered tonight to hear details on the Brownsboro Road Diet and Sidewalk project. The project is expected to break ground this summer. This news was met with enthusiastic applause from the crowd, whose only complaint was that the project wasn't already complete!
Ralph Tharp, executive director of Kentucky Capital Development Corporation in Frankfort, is championing a new passenger rail service linking Louisville, Lexington, and nine other stops. Trains would run at commute hours, and combine the speed of driving with the superior comfort, safety and economy of rail.

TARC's "Bikes on Board" program has been so successfull, people are complaining that there's no space. One possible stopgap is to replace the current generation of 2-bike racks with 3-bike racks. TARC has outfitted a pair of buses with triple racks and is going to begin testing them soon. Reps from CART and Bicycling for Louisville were invited to give feedback at a meeting today. The racks were not perfect, but neither were the existing racks. Yours truly brought his biggest, most cantankerous bicycle, which is actually incompatible with the current crop of racks, and it looks like both models of new rack are better for it.
If you use one of these on the street, be sure to write TARC and/or comment here with any thoughts you might have on them.
