PARKING LANE CLOSURE
BEGINS 10/28/19 AT 8AM
Beginning on Monday, October 28, 2019, the westbound parking lane at Jefferson Street and 6th Street will be closed for placement of a new RAPID bus station. The closure will last for approximately 4 weeks.
A significant part of The New Dixie Highway project is a new Bus Rapid Transit Line, called the RAPID. It’s the first BRT line in the region. The RAPID will offer improved bus service along one of TARC’s busiest corridors, served by existing Route 18.
New RAPID stations, which will also be used by other bus routes, will be installed starting in September along the entire route. The RAPID will run from near the Gene Snyder, all the way up Dixie Highway to Broadway, then into Downtown Louisville.
The six downtown stops will be:
- Ninth and Muhammad Ali – NB
- Ninth and Muhammad Ali – SB
- Market and Ninth – NB
- Market at Sixth – EB
- Market at Second – EB
- Jefferson at Sixth – WB
Lane closures will be in place while concrete pad and other concrete work is installed to support the higher wear-and-tear that occurs at bus stops. The actual bus shelters will also be installed starting in September, but that work will take place on the sidewalk and will have little direct impact on traffic.
