According to INRIX's National Traffic Scorecard, Louisville's traffic congestion declined last year by 39%, well above the national average of 30%. That leaves Louisville in 46th place among US cities in terms of traffic congestion. That's pretty amazing for the "16th Largest City."
The reduction in congestion definitely begs the question, "Why do we need a 23-lane interchange to rival Los Angeles, CAÂ (the most congested city) when our traffic doesn't compare?" The East End Bridge alone will reduce Kennedy Bridge traffic by 18% according to the Environmental Impact Statement.Â It's time toÂ take action to protect the future of our city.
