Louisville Loop – Northeast Trail

First Public Meeting/Open House – February 4th
Seeking input on design for Middletown–Eastwood Trail segments

LOUISVILLE (January 23, 2013) – Louisville Metro Parks will hold the first public meeting/open house to seek input from local residents and businesses on the design of the planned Middletown–Eastwood Trail (MET) portion of the Louisville Loop. The meeting will be held Monday, February 4, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Middletown Fire Department, 108 Urton Lane, Louisville KY.

The first segment of the MET shared-use path begins at Eastwood Cutoff and extends west to the Gene Snyder Freeway (Interstate 265). The second segment begins at the Gene Snyder Freeway and extends west to Old Shelbyville Road.

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 Eastwood to Middletown. Along its route, the MET will connect residential neighborhoods, such as the historic village of Eastwood, to the Parklands at Floyd’s Fork, commercial centers, eateries, and the historic downtown and shops at Middletown.

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. Residents will be able to view project materials and provide input to Louisville Metro Parks and the design team.

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.
