Ohio River Valley Northeast Segment

Leave a comment

Welcome to the Ohio River Valley Northeast Section Project Website

The Louisville Loop is a planned 100-mile shared-use path corridor planned to circle the city of Louisville and connect its many neighborhoods, communities, historic, and cultural sites. Portions have been built along the Ohio River, on the levee in southwest Louisville, Floyds Fork and portions across southern Louisville. Planning has been completed on all segments of the Loop except the stretch that will connect Prospect back to the Big Four bridge. Several past studies have identified potential routes through this portion of the city, but currently there is no master plan for this portion of the Loop. Throughout 2014 and the Spring of 2015, Metro Louisville will be working with residents and community stakeholders to identify the best route for the Louisville Loop as it connects Prospect to the Big Four bridge and they want to hear from you! There are several ways that residents can keep informed and provide input into the planning process. Check this website often for updates and project materials to review. Project updates will also be posted regularly on the Louisville Loop Facebook Page.  There will also be a number of public meetings, focus group meetings, and individual stakeholder meetings. To request a meeting or to request to be included on one of the project’s focus groups, send an email to linkingtheloop@tswdesigngroup.com. Help us plan the final leg of the Louisville Loop!
