Lexington Road closure

Lexington Road closure
February 17, 2020

Beginning February 17, Louisville Water crews will close Lexington Road between Stilz Avenue and Grinstead Drive. This closure is due to the location of the water main and safety concerns making repairs with active traffic.

Additionally, due to the increased project footprint, Lexington Road will be closed to through traffic from Grinstead Drive to Stilz Avenue until mid-April.

Residents will have local access to reach their homes. The repairs do not impact water service for customers.

The project is approximately two-thirds complete and we expect to finish the project on time by May 1. When the project concludes in 2020, Louisville Water will have replaced 6.4 miles of water main.

The Eastern Parkway Project will cost approximately $26 million dollars and is funded through Louisville Water’s capital budget.

Once this step is complete, it will mark the end of the largest main replacement project in Louisville Water’s history, with 6.4 miles of replaced water mains. The Eastern Parkway Project will cost approximately $26 million dollars and is funded through Louisville Water’s capital budget. 

Louisville Water greatly appreciates your understanding as we work to complete this important project.
