New bike parking has been installed in a parking lot along Frankfort Avenue near the corner of Keats Avenue. The 12-bike rack takes up the space of just one car parking space in the public lot. According to the Green Triangle blog, this is the first time a car parking space has been replaced by bike parking in Louisville.

Previous attempts to install an on-street bike corral on Frankfort Avenue have not moved forward and have faced resistance from the state. Rolf Eisinger of Bike Louisville told Broken Sidewalk that the city is working to put some sort of rubber bumper and signage at the perimeter of the parking space to keep cars and motorcycles out of the new space.

  1. A great start. Amazing to hear that the state is rersistant to adding more bike parking to Frankfort. They seemed to offer no resistance to adding more than 20 new parallel spaces for cars earlier this summer.
