Neighbors at odds over proposed bike lanes in Deer Park, Belknap

A local advocacy group's proposal to install bike lanes along Norris Place and Douglass Boulevard has left some in the community divided.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A proposal for new bike lanes in the Deer Park and Belknap neighborhoods at odds.

Local advocacy group Streets for the People and a group of neighborhood residents want to install bike lanes along Norris Place and Douglass Boulevard, linking Eastern Parkway and Bardstown Road.

The group wants Metro Public Works to explore adding a protected bike and scooter lane to the noirth side of the road. They said the 8-foot protected lane would replace one of the 8-foot parking lanes.

Not all neighbors are on board.

A community forum was held Tuesday night where residents could share their concerns.

The survey about the project has been released. Visit it by clicking here.
