100 miles of road paved in Metro Louisville

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - After so many citizen complaints about roads in Louisville, Metro Government made a big push to fix roads in 2016.

So far this year, Louisville's Mayor Greg Fischer announced 100 miles of road has been paved.
"Anybody who's driven our city will tell you our streets needed be to paved," Fischer said.
Metro Louisville officials decided to put a large portion of the budget toward fixing Louisville streets and roads - $5 billion to be exact.
"We have $5 billion in transportation infrastructure to give you some kind of feel for how big this is," Fischer said.

The entire stretch of Broadway from 22nd to 45th Streets were just paved. On Friday, crews were found along Ridgehurst Place. A relief to citizens who live in this area.

"It's like a roller coaster," Nell Caruso said.

Road rideability is measured on a scale of 1-100. That's how officials determine which roads to pave next.

Next on the list, South Sixth from Ashland to Woodlawn will be milled and paved Monday and Tuesday.
