Day 129: Louisville Loop’s Next Phase

12 05 2010

Yesterday, Louisville Loop organizers held a public meeting to unveil the plans for the northeast section of the loop, which will add 15 more miles to the loop and will connect some of the most heavily-developed areas of the county with the existing loop.

The addition will extend into a dozen communities, link six TARC (bus) routes and four parks. Some residents expressed concern over the safety of some areas of the loop, so city planners will review resident’s suggestions. A final route is expected to be finished by the end of the month. Finding funding will be the next step in the process.

More information about yesterday’s meeting is available at the Courier-Journal’s website and WHAS TV. You can view the entire draft plan of the loop here (PDF files) and a map here.

I’m excited about the next phase of the Loop. I don’t ride in that part of town very often because the traffic along River Road is pretty crazy, so I’m looking forward to a safer option once this section of the Loop gets completed.

Today’s food journal:

— Chocolate Mint Builder Bar = 270 cal.

— Grilled cheese on whole wheat = 431
— 1 cup potato chips = 150
— Iced tea = 0

— 4 bite-size Reece’s peanut butter cups = 144
— 5 bite-size Tootsie Rolls = 117

— Grilled chicken sandwich = 262
— 1 cup potato salad = 358
— Iced tea = 0

Life is a journey. Enjoy the ride!
