LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Louisville Metro Council is the next stop in the campaign to open the K&I Bridge for public use.

A resolution urging Norfolk Southern Railroad to allow cyclists and pedestrians on the span of the bridge connecting the Portland neighborhood and New Albany, Indiana was introduced during Thursday's Louisville Metro Council meeting.

The New Albany City Council has adopted a similar resolution.

Norfolk Southern Company officials are not in favor of allowing pedestrians on the bridge, citing safety concerns.
