Neighborhoods Connected

As population density increased in suburbs of Louisville, neighborhoods such as Camp Taylor, Audubon Park, Germantown, and the Highlands saw more traffic. As early as 1928,city planners investigated a connector road between Newburg and Poplar Level Roads south of Eastern Parkway. The right of way connection construction happened sometime between 1937 and 1941.
