LOUISVILLE, Ky. (May 16, 2013) – Louisville Metro Parks will hold a public meeting/open house on the design of the planned Middletown–Eastwood Trail (MET) portion of the Louisville Loop, Tuesday, May 28, 2013 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Middletown Fire Department, 108 Urton Lane, Louisville KY.

This meeting will focus on the first segment of the MET shared-use path, which begins at Old Shelbyville Road and extends east to North English Station.

The second segment of the MET, which begins at Beckley Woods Station and extends east to the Eastwood Cutoff, will be discussed at a future meeting, yet to be scheduled.

When completed, the MET shared-use path will provide a continuous and safe bicycle and pedestrian connection along one of the city’s busiest streets from Middletown to Eastwood.

The meeting will be an open house format from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., with a brief presentation at 6:30 p.m.

About the Louisville Loop:

When complete, the Louisville Loop will be a 100-mile shared-use path encircling Louisville, linking existing and new parks and neighborhoods to civic, business, retail and recreational attractions, while promoting healthier lifestyles by providing safe and accessible opportunities for walking, jogging, cycling and, in some areas, horseback riding.
