In an effort to show how easy it is to get around on a bike or on foot on one of Metro Louisville’s most popular streets, Frankfort Avenue will become a paved park for the next CycLOUvia event set for Sunday, June 11th.
“CycLOUvia is a great opportunity to remind ourselves that we can live without our cars from time to time and still traverse our neighborhoods,” says Councilman Bill Hollander (D-9). “Fortunately, more people are becoming aware of that fact, which makes our citizens healthier and our neighborhoods greener.”
CycLOUvia will take place between Pope Street and Stilz Avenue between 2:00pm and 6:00pm with cross traffic allowed at Ewing Avenue. During that time, no cars will be allowed and bicycles, pedestrians, skaters, and strollers will take over The Avenue.
The Crescent Hill Library will be open from 2:00 – 6:00 p.m. during this special event, with staff paid for by the Citizens of District 9. Many businesses along The Avenue till have special offerings.
For more information about CycLOUvia on Frankfort Avenue, contact Councilman Hollander’s office at 574-1109.
