LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Plans are in the works to widen Saint Andrews Church Road in Pleasure Ridge Park.

The project would widen the road between Dixie Highway and Palatka Road. It's a congested area carrying traffic for Doss High School, Trunnell Elementary and the Southwest YMCA.

Currently, Saint Andrews Church Road is a two-lane road, but the plan would add a center turn lane.

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet spokeswoman Andrea Clifford said, "Particularly if you have a vehicle that's wanting to turn left into a residence or business, you have traffic backed up behind them."

Crews are still very early in the design process. Clifford said most of the feedback has been positive, but it would be four or five years before construction would actually begin.
