LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – City officials are spreading the reach of the Dixie Do Over Project by more than five miles.
During a community meeting Wednesday evening, Councilwoman Cindi Fowler, who represent District 14, reassured Valley Station neighbors who live south of the Gene Snyder Freeway that the project will reach them.
The replacement project for the existing 13 miles construction is underway, starting at the first section between Orell Road and Bethany Lane. Workers will not pave during the winter months, but are scheduled to pick back up in the spring. The rest of the highway will be repaved by sections. All sections, including Orell Road down to Salt River, will be repaved by the end of 2016.
Being from that area, Fowler said her community has always felt left out. Now, she is excited Dixie Highway is receiving the attention it deserves.
