LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Daily commutes in the city will soon change as Louisville is speeding up its road repair schedule.
Tuesday afternoon, Louisville Metro City Council members met with Metro Public Works officials to discuss road repair plans and funding.
Several downtown streets in Old Louisville and the Central Business District are in dire need of repair. Since 2015, numerous pot holes have been filled with cold mix, which is used as a temporary fix. However, the mix isn't creating a smooth drive.
Several streets, such as Sixth Street and Chestnut Street, have been put on hold due to utility work.
"They're not in the way, they have to do what they have to do to make sure we have weather, sewers, gas and electric. We just have to be patient and work with them on it," Assistant Director of Metro Public Works Jeff Brown said.
The cold mix is the only option for repairs during the winter months.
