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.
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.
The project will bring to the neighborhoods on both sides of Brownsboro Rd:
- Much safer pedestrian, bicycle, and car transit
- A welcoming environment,
- More efficient traffic patterns,
- A vibrant business community available to all
