7600 Stuart Avenue - Neighborhood Proposal


Preliminary plans are in the works to build 26 single-family homes on a 4.3-acre plot of land in southwest Louisville, and neighbors have mixed feelings about it.

The plot of land is right off Dixie Highway, near Stuart Ave and Fury Way. 

An informational meeting with the developer will be held at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday to talk about the proposal. That meeting will be at the Southwest Regional Library, 9725 Dixie Hwy. 

7600 Stuart Avenue was previously considered for a self storage unit facility extension of Fort Locks: http://portal.louisvilleky.gov/codesandregs/permit/detail?type=ZONE&id=16ZONE1080 

The current plan for single-family homes does not require any zoning change as the property is currently zoned R-4.

KY Transportation Cabinet Updates on Dixie Hwy


Below is a list of projects overseen by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet happening in Southwest Louisville.

US 31W (Dixie Highway) South:The right lane will be closed at Algonquin Parkway Lane (mile marker 17.0) for construction of a concrete bus pad. 

US 31W (Dixie Highway):  Lane closures and sidewalk closures in place between Blanton Lane and Crums Lane (mile markers 12.5 to 15.3) due to construction for access management and bus rapid transit lines. Left lane is closed in each direction between Kendall Road and I-264 (mile markers 14.2 to 14.7). Roadway is reduced to two lanes on southbound Dixie Highway between Blanton Lane and Upper Hunters Trace. Roadway is reduced to one lane southbound and two lanes northbound between Herbert Avenue and Crums Lane. In these areas where the lane closures are in place, the sidewalks are closed on the side where the roadwork is taking place. Pedestrians need to cross Dixie Highway at a signalized intersection and use the sidewalk on the other side of the road instead of walking through the construction work.

Log on to goky.ky.gov for the latest in statewide traffic and travel information in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

New Dixie Highway News

Check out the recent WHAS story on the Median Installation: 



Don’t Cross Between Construction Barrels

Crews on The New Dixie Highway Project have begun installing medians – one of the most dangerous phases of the project.  

Project team leaders request that drivers use extra caution. It is especially dangerous to attempt to turn left, through the construction area. (See picture.) This maneuver is dangerous even when workers are not active.  

By installing medians, The New Dixie Highway Project will restrict mid-block left turns – and will guide drivers to turn at signalized intersections or designated U-turn points. 


Concrete Bus Pads Do the Heavy Lifting

You may have noticed concrete rectangles inserted into the asphalt roadway at certain locations along Dixie Highway. These are bus pads, and they are designed to take the heavy wear and tear that happens at bus stops.

While new concrete can stand out next to asphalt as a contrasting color, the concrete grows darker with age. (And asphalt lightens with age.) This means the bus pads may be less noticeable over time, but they will continue to hold up well
