Bike Louisville – New Bike Lanes Old Louisville


Dear Pedestrian & Bicycle Advocates:

We wanted to share with you some exciting news regarding a great leap forward for biking efforts in our city. This afternoon, Mayor Greg Fischer  — as part of his annual city budget — will announce the addition of 28 miles of bike lanes and shared lanes. This marks the greatest increase in bike lanes in years for Louisville.

 
Those additional 28 miles will be concentrated in Old Louisville, creating an urban bicycle network that connects downtown to the University of Louisville Belknap Campus and surrounding neighborhoods and schools, including SoBro and Spalding University. 

In 2005, the city held its first bike summit and set a path for Louisville to become a gold-level bicycle friendly community by 2015, as defined by the League of American Bicyclists.  This funding will once again “jump start” our efforts in advancing Louisville as a bicycle-friendly community.

Mayor Fischer’s budget will be presented at 4 p.m. today and you can watch his presentation live on MetroTV, cable channel 25, and live online at http://www.louisvilleky.gov.  

Once the budget is presented, the Metro Council must approve it. Mayor Fischer is committed to making Louisville a benchmark city for cycling — and today’s announcements puts us on that path. Please voice your support for these efforts.

Thanks,

Bike Louisville
