"The era of one-way streets in downtown Louisville may be coming to an end."


You can almost hear the wooden gears grinding in Mayor Fischer's head.

I supported the ORBP because of all that increased traffic, but how do we handle all that increased traffic unless we make the streets wider and faster, not less -- except if there isn't going to be all that increased traffic, in which case, why did I support the ORBP? What if ... maybe ... aaargggh.

Besides that, Greg, if a Kentucky governor is for it, there has to be catch somewhere, right?

The memos also may be flying fast and furious near Hauss Square in New Albany; after all, if the Kentucky governor is for it and the Louisville mayor is confused, can't we just drop the whole thing and reinstall streetside ditch sewers?

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – The era of one-way streets in downtown Louisville may be coming to an end.

As part of his two-year highway plan, Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear has proposed spending $3.1 million to begin converting 10 streets to handle traffic in two directions as early as this year.
