LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – There will soon be a new pedestrian walkway connecting the Muhammad Ali Center and the Belvedere.
The plans for the walkway over Sixth Street were unveiled Friday. The 170 ft walkway will be nine feet wide. Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer says it will also be key in connecting many other downtown destinations.
“It’s going to link visitors on foot to not only the Ali Center but other downtown attractions and destinations. The Belvedere, obviously the Kentucky Center, the Galt House, the Yum! Center,” says Fischer.
Weather permitting, construction on the walkway should begin in the spring and last six to eight months. The project is expected to cost $835,000.
