Street conversion being considered for downtown Lexington

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Wednesday night city leaders and community members in Lexington will meet to discuss the possibility of changing one-way streets to two-way streets for the North side of downtown.

Streets under review include North Limestone and North Upper streets from Main Street to Seventh Street, and Short and Second Streets from Newtown Pike to Midland Avenue.

During the meeting organizers will determine if changing the streets from one-way to two-way will help businesses become more accessible, lessen driver confusion and improve safety.

There will also be a brief presentation of the overall downtown Lexington traffic movement and revitalization study.

Chris King is the Director of the Division of Planning. He says, "We have had a study going on for a long time now and we are going to share the preliminary results of findings of that study and the impact that this changes might have on the north side of town."

Also during the meeting the public will have a chance to ask questions and express their opinion on the pros and cons of two-way street conversion.

WKYT will have more on the outcome of the traffic movement as details come in.
