Recruiting visits to the University of Louisville’s Belknap Campus are much nicer today after completion of $2.5 million in Eastern Parkway improvements, specifically the overpass adjacent to the old Parkway Field which U of L shared with the old Louisville Colonels baseball franchise.
According to a Courier-Journal report, the improvements were part of an overall $7 million campus beautification effort begun during the gubernatorial administration of Ernie Fletcher and continued under Steve Beshear.
The Eastern Parkway improvements:
- A redesigned traffic flow with a new raised median and ornamental concrete railings, with bike lanes in each direction.
- Extensive repairs to the CSX Railroad bridge spanning Floyd and Brook streets. A wider bridge deck has been constructed to accommodate expanded sidewalks
- Installation of a raised median with decorative fencing between the traffic signal at the Speed School entrance and Third Street.
- Sidewalk improvements, new street lighting, bus shelters and wall decorations.

No more human Frogger at Speed… I was there yesterday admiring the improvements, and drove over the bridge after attending class. The speed limit has also been lowered to 25… about time.
Can’t wait to drive over to see all the improvements in person.
