LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Bicyclists itching to hit the pavement on new bike lanes in the Highlands will have to wait a little longer.

The city delayed their repaving of the bike lanes on Grinstead Drive from Monday, July 7 to Wednesday, July 9 because storms are set to roll into the area.

Grinstead will be reconfigured from four driving lanes to a single driving lane in each direction, a center turning lane and one bicycle lane in each direction.

Metro Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator Rolf Eisinger said the project will help make the neighborhood more safe.

The project, which is expected to take a week to complete, was well received in two public meetings held in April.
