LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - For four hours Sunday barricades blocked off the heart of the Highlands, from Douglass Loop to Broadway.

Only peddling and pedestrians were allowed along a three mile corridor of Baxter Avenue and Bardstown Road. CycLouVia is a concept to attract families, friends and neighbors to temporarily share some car-free space.

Metro Planning estimated this year as attracting record setting crowds. Organizers said they plan to start more events like this on Frankfort Avenue and Broadway.
