Lexington Road closure

Lexington Road closure
March 11, 2020

Louisville Water is continuing its work along Lexington Road to repair a 1930 water main. This final phase of the Eastern Parkway Project has proven to be the most complex.

Beginning March 17, Lexington Road will close at the intersection of Stilz Avenue. Westbound drivers will be able to take a right-hand turn onto Stilz and follow the detour to Grinstead Drive. Unfortunately, the location of the 1930 water main will not allow up to safely complete this work without closing  the intersection. 

Residents will have local access from Lexington and Grinstead, but for safety purposes, they will not be able to enter or exit Lexington Road at Stilz Avenue. We will post updates at LouisvilleWater.com/EasternPkwyProject and on our Twitter account @LouisvilleWater using #EasternPkwyProject

The repairs do not impact water service for customers and we expect to finish the project by the end of Spring 2020 when 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.
